Residency Program

At the University of Kansas Medical Center, the Department of Urology has a well-established dedication to educating medical students and providing residents with training opportunities. We view it as both our duty and honor to impart the knowledge and skills necessary to future generations of physicians in the field of urology.

Program Overview

The Department of Urology boasts a prestigious history of esteemed faculty and residents, some of whom have served as past presidents of the American Urological Association. This strong tradition of excellence has enabled us to train highly successful urologists for both academic and private practice settings.

Additional accomplishments include:

Doximity Residency Program Rankings: #22 overall, #10 amongst public universities, #5 for public universities with VA and pediatric hospitals associated with the program.

In October 2019, the Review Committee commended the program for its demonstrated substantial compliance with the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education’s (ACGME) program requirements and/or institutional requirements without any citations. “Commended” and “substantial” are verbiage reserved for excellently performing programs and used sparingly by the RCC.

The Department of Urology staff aims to equip residents with comprehensive skills in both surgical and nonsurgical aspects of urology. Our intensive surgical program ensures that graduating residents are well-prepared and confident in their future medical practice. Equally important is our nonoperative clinic experience, which provides residents with the necessary expertise to handle complicated diagnostic problems encountered in ambulatory settings.

Each year, we accept four residents for a total training period of five years. Residents actively participate in clinical and basic research, and we encourage them to apply their investigative skills for lifelong learning and continued medical education. Our goal is to prepare residents for excellence in the competencies outlined by ACGME, including patient care, medical knowledge, practice-based learning and improvement, interpersonal and communication skills, professionalism, and systems-based practice.
