New class of chief residents 2015

Our department is committed to ensuring that urologists achieve the highest standards of professional training. We do this through our nationally recognized residency program, fellowship training opportunities, and a rich program of continuing medical education. Our goal is to develop compassionate physicians expert in the latest urologic evaluation, intervention, and research.

Our vision:

  • to provide compassionate, cost-effective, skillful and innovative care to all patients
  • to ask relevant questions and answer them with scientific knowledge obtained through laboratory and clinical research
  • to educate students, residents and fellows in the art and science of urology and thereby to train the future leaders in our field
  • to recognize that the Department of Urology is a group of individuals working together, responsibly and ethically, to achieve its goals
