or programs are taught throughout the school year. The major objective of the Department
of Urology is to develop, in conjunction with the other
surgical specialties, a clinical and didactic course in diseases of the urinary tract
and male reproductive tract. Some of the major cancers and
diseases seen in the practice of medicine today are cared for primarily by urologists.
The Department of Urology participates in the third year clerkship coordinated by the Department of Surgery. Approximately one fourth of the class is assigned a four-week rotation in Urology. Urology faculty are responsible for assigned core lectures and seminars. An extensive urology syllabus has been developed and is given to all students at the beginning of their urology rotation. Seniors frequently elect one of the three courses offered by the faculty. Most of the seniors electing urology are those interested in becoming urologists, but we are seeing more senior students who just feel urology is important and they have not had any prior exposure.
Full-time urology faculty interact with the students daily, either in conferences, on rounds, in the clinics, or in the operating room. Ample opportunity exists for students to participate in the daily care of patients in the outpatient department.
