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
