In addition to the clinical training, the Urology Residency Program at the University of Michigan incorporates a variety of academic activities to enrich the overall training experience. These include weekly Grand Rounds, Multidisciplinary Genitourinary Tumor Board, Resident/Faculty-led didactic lecture, and service-specific case conferences. Residents are also provided with Campbell-Walsh Urology, the AUA Update Series, Hinman’s Atlas of Urologic Surgery, and a plethora of other study material.
To promote collaboration and stimulate innovation, the University of Michigan Department of Urology plays host to four major visiting professorships per year where thought leaders in urology are invited to share their expertise with our Department, alumni, and members of the Michigan community.
All residents are encouraged to advance the field of urology through clinical, translation, and basic science research. The Department fully supports each resident and provides access to translational and basic science laboratories, institutional and national databases, and the requisite statistical support. Many residents have elected to continue as fellows in the Clinical and Translational Research Training in Urology Program.
