Rotations are performed across multiple facilities that include, but not limited to, the locations listed below. In accordance with ACGME guidelines, the urologic resident spends a minimum of one year in PGY1 rotations related to general surgery. A minimum of three months on general surgery rotations are combined with rotations of two months in critical care as well as one to two month rotations on vascular surgery, plastic surgery, trauma surgery, pediatric surgery, thoracic surgery and urology. These rotations are meant to create a strong foundation in general surgical / critical care knowledge, skill sets, and an introduction to urology. It is purposely broad to enable the burgeoning urologic resident to develop the necessary clinical and technological skills to deal with a wide range of patients and medical conditions.

An example of our rotation schedule:
