Male Genitourinary Reconstruction and Trauma Fellowship
Established in 1989 under the guidance of Jack W. McAninch, MD, FACS. The UCSF Male Genitourinary Reconstruction and Trauma Fellowship program provides a robust surgical training experience including but not limited to adult urethral and genital reconstruction, urinary diversion and fistula repairs, genital cancer and penile preservation procedures, adult pelvic and urethral reconstruction, Peyronie’s disease, erectile dysfunction, and diagnosis and management of male urinary incontinence. Academic research is also at the forefront of the program, fellows utilize an extensive trauma and reconstructive database developed over the years.
In 2013, Benjamin N. Breyer, MD, MAS became the Fellowship Program Director. He is an alumnus of the program from 2011. Under his leadership, the fellowship program continuously evolves to ensure that all graduates are equipped with the knowledge and skills to not only excel but also to become leaders and role models in the field.
The UCSF Male Genitourinary Reconstruction and Trauma Fellowship program is a mentored, graduated experience in trauma diagnosis and management primarily based on Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital and Trauma Center (ZSFG). This provides the fellow an opportunity to work as a member of a Trauma Team providing care for acute trauma to the urinary and genital system. Fellows are supervised and guided through the development of research projects, which include protocol preparation and development, statistical analysis, data collection techniques, data interpretation, manuscript preparation, etc. It is expected that each trainee will complete and publish numerous manuscripts during fellowship.
Aside from the clinical and academic research experience, the program also focuses in honing leadership qualities to prepare the fellow for future leadership roles in academic medicine.
We participate in the Society of Genitourinary Reconstructive Surgery (GURS) Fellowship Match process administered by the American Urological Association (AUA).
