Urology Residency Training Program
The Residency Training Program within the Division of Urology at the University of Colorado School of Medicine is an fully-accredited ACGME five-year program with a resident complement of three (3) residents per year.
The educational philosophy of the program is to provide the best possible resident training in urology. To achieve this, the goals for urology resident training are:
- To provide adequate volume and variety of surgical experience in general urology and the various urologic subspecialties. This includes urologic cancer, female urology and neurourology, pediatric urology, infertility and impotence, endourology and stone disease, and genitourinary trauma.
- To provide adequate ambulatory experience (outpatient clinical experience) in general urology and various urologic subspecialties as listed above.
- To provide educational and research conferences to further enhance the training experience. These conferences will cover the basic sciences as they relate to urologic physiology and pathology, urologic imaging, combined morbidity and mortality conferences for all participating institutions, urological pathology, journal reviews, and other subjects having educational value in the basic and clinical domains of urology.
In order to meet the above listed goals of the Urology residency training program, it is necessary to have the residents rotate through a number of institutions. Each institution is unique and essential in providing the necessary volume and variety of cases for optimal resident training. All the participating institutions are within close proximity, allowing for resident interaction and combined conference participation at least two (2) times per week.
