Urology Education Fellowships and Residencies
2021 Urology Residency Match Policy
The Society of Academic Urologists (SAU) acknowledge the traditional importance of external rotations for medical students in the application process for 1) experiencing the full depth and breadth of urology before committing to the specialty; 2) ongoing clinical education in the specialty; and 3) obtaining additional letters of recommendation to assist programs in the evaluation of medical student applicants. COVID-19 has significantly altered medical education. Given differing levels of disease impact in different regions, many institutions are not allowing medical students to rotate in or out which disadvantages both students and the programs. In response, the Coalition for Physician Accountability, an association consisting of the AAMC, ACGME, NBME and other groups, as well as other medical subspecialties, have developed policies prohibiting away rotations this year. In accordance with this policy and to minimize health risks, financial burden, and to ensure the most equitable experience for all students and all programs during this pandemic, the following decisions have been made by the executive committee of the SAU.
