According to Doximity’s 2021-2022 Residency Navigator rankings, UCSF Urology Residency Program ranks #2 in the nation and ranks #1 in California and in the West Coast. The Residency Navigator ranking provides insight to medical residency programs across the nation. Rankings are based on peer nominations, ratings, and hand-written reviews, similar to the US News & World Report’s methodology.

Dr. Benjamin Breyer, Associate Chair for Education and Residency Program Director summed up the department’s assessment on behalf of the entire faculty:

“The residency program is the crown jewel of the Department. We’re laser focused on resident diversity, education, and well-being. We have an incredibly gifted, diverse, and caring group of residents.  Helping them develop and reach their full potential is a thrill and a privilege that is highly valued by our faculty. We are so proud of our residents!”

Dr. Lindsay Hampson, the Associate Residency Program Director, added:

“We constantly strive to improve based upon resident feedback and engagement. Our goal is to continually adapt the residency to ensure we are meeting the educational, personal, and professional needs of our residents. As a result, we continue to push the envelope towards development of innovative and exciting educational opportunities that create future leaders in the field.”

Chief resident, Dr. Maya Overland and Dr. John Lindsey, provided some insight from a resident’s perspective.

“Over the last six years, I’ve seen our program evolve in real time in response to our residents‘ goals and feedback. I picked Urology because I love the willingness to innovate and adapt that we embody as a field and UCSF Urology epitomizes that! I have grown so much both as a surgeon and as a person in my time here, and I am hugely grateful for the mentorship and the opportunities.”

- Dr. Maya Overland

“As I complete my final year of residency, I feel immense gratitude for the program I fell in love with six years ago. I am grateful for a department that continuously listens and adapts to the changing needs of its trainees. I am grateful to call our kaleidoscopic group of residents my family. I am grateful to have worked alongside leaders in our field in a broad range of practice environments. I am grateful that through this program, I have matched at an incredible fellowship and look forward to a bright career. Six years suddenly feels very short!”

- Dr. John Lindsey
