Survey Respondent: 
Michael O. Koch, MD, Department Chair
If you were an applicant, why would you choose to train in your residency program?: 
We have one of the highest surgical volumes for major cancer and reconstructive cases in the nation. We also have one of the largest pediatric experiences in the country with 5 full time pediatric urologists on staff.
What is your program looking for in a graduating medical student?: 
We are looking for intelligent hard working students that can get along well with our faculty and co-residents.
What part of an application do you consider most important in ranking applicants?: 
Letters of recommendation from trusted colleagues. Grades on surgery, medicine and urology.
What advice do you have for medical students hoping to match in Urology?: 
Urology is highly competitive and each year 30-35% of applying students do not match. If you are persistent, you can usually find a position eventually, but if you are not as competitive, you should consider what your contingency plan will be. Work hard on your clinical rotations. You need to distinguish yourself on your surgical and urology rotations.
