The residents will still see the same quality four-year urology training, according to Jay Hollander, M.D., Urology residency program director who added that the pre-urology surgical training would be tailored to a one-year exposure. “Nationally, most programs have trended towards a five-year program,” noted Dr. Hollander. “The cost of medical education has skyrocketed, and we hope this will be viewed as a favorable aspect to our program without significantly compromising the educational component.”
and would like to add UIC as well

Stay away from this program, IMHO.On the list of rather non-malignant programs, I really liked MCG. A very well balanced program with awesome opportunities.Take care

The resident the night before the interview just couldn't hide his unhappiness about being there. It was kinda sad actually.I know this is being superficial, but they didn't offer us any dinner the night before or lunch after the interviews like many of the other programs did, which let me know how little they care about making a good impression.I didn't like that their call is IN-HOUSE as opposed to home call like every other program in the nation.One interviewer straight up told me he yells at his residents while they're operating. Later I found out from an attending at my home program that they're actually known for namecalling and putting down their residents.Overall, I just couldn't see myself somewhere for 5 years with attendings that will call me stupid and retarded whenever they please, could you imagine the M&M conferences?? ouch
it's been like this for years. and it doesn't look like things have changed much. when i interviewed a few years ago, a student from UO recommended that i not rank them. it's actually kind of shameful the way the run their program. all the other urology programs in the country have a certain standard of being chill and relatively supportive. they're like the neighbor that beats their kids. you just feel bad for the residents who have to train there.
