If you were an applicant, why would you choose to train in your residency program?: 
We have a robust educational platform and an extremely busy clinical service. At the completion of training you will feel confident in your competence.
What is your program looking for in a graduating medical student?: 
A strong work ethic and an insatiable inquisitiveness.
What part of an application do you consider most important in ranking applicants?: 
The applicants personal interaction with residents and faculty. We welcome and encourage those who wish to have an elective rotation.
What advice do you have for medical students hoping to match in Urology?: 
Seek the advice of senior faculty in urology at your medical school and ask the younger residents in the program about their application/interview experiences.


Strong in robotics (obs), but seem to be well-rounded in everything else as well. Don't have an infertility person, but it sounds like they're planning to get one. The faculty are all fairly young and seem like they're planning on sticking around. This one had a bigger name among applicants than faculty since all of this is fairly new (last 5-10 years) and hasn't gotten into the collective uro mind yet.

The thing everyone complains about after interviewing there is that you have to wear scrubs any time you aren't in the OR (yes, that includes running to the floor between cases, on morning rounds, clinic, etc). However, they do have free dry cleaning so apparently it's a lot less of a pain than you might think.
