Interview Impressions: UCDSix year program, with 2 years of general surgery up front with plenty of urology rotations during that time. Overall good training with good volume. They rotate at a VA and at Kaiser as well as UCD. Lots of robotic experience with 3 robots total. Good specialty coverage. Six months dedicated research in PG5 year. All of the residents said they were happy with the program, but they didn't really seem like a cohesive group to me. I didn't get a great vibe but other people I talked to definitely did. The people who matched there are all great.

I spent this summer shadowing
I spent this summer shadowing phsyicans at UC Davis and spent 5 rotations with the Urology department. The attendings are fantastic, by far the friendliest of the bunch, and the residents were very friendly and among the most competent of those that I shadowed. That said, they all have their own personalities, and the cohesiveness usually follows in the efforts that the chief resident makes to achieve this result. Overall, they had a great team, but not as cohesive as, say, oncology. Just a thought.
