The department of Urology at Beaumont Hospital, Royal Oak will be transitioning its residency program from six years to five years, starting with the 2012-2013 academic term on July 1. 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.”Please visit the Programs website for further information:  Urology - http://meded.beaumont.edu/urology-residency Program Faculty - http://meded.beaumont.edu/urology-program-facultyCurriculum - http://meded.beaumont.edu/urology-curriculumDidactics- http://meded.beaumont.edu/urology-didacticsGoals & Objectives - http://meded.beaumont.edu/urology-goals-objectivesOutcomes - http://meded.beaumont.edu/urology-outcomesResearch - http://meded.beaumont.edu/urology-researchBeaumont Urology News - http://meded.beaumont.edu/urology-patient-populationEvents - http://meded.beaumont.edu/node/641Application - http://meded.beaumont.edu/urology-application
