Fourth-year medical students can apply to join our program through the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS®). Interviews are offered to applicants in the fall of the year prior to matriculation. Two applicants are admitted annually to the program. Admitted students start in our General Surgery Program, into which they are automatically enrolled after being accepted to our Urology Program. After a year of residency in the General Surgery Program, admitted students will then move to four years in our Urology Program.
