The MedStar Health Department of Urology is dedicated to providing clinical care and promoting training environments that embrace diversity, equity and inclusion.

By virtue of our location in a large, metropolitan city, we provide urologic care for a diverse patient population and continuously strive to improve access to care and eliminate health disparities in the region. Both MedStar Georgetown University Hospital and MedStar Washington Hospital Center partner with community organizations to provide urologic care to patients who are underinsured or without insurance at all, as well as those patients who have historically lacked access to the subspecialty care they need. We also serve the international community through the MedStar Georgetown Advocacy and International Services Program, which facilitates transportation, lodging, financial arrangements and interpretation services for our patients seeking care at MedStar Health from outside the country.

We are committed to developing a residency program that reflects the diversity of our communities and the diversity we envision in the future leaders within the field of Urology. We are making active efforts to recognize our implicit biases and to understand and nurture an environment that is genuinely anti-racist, and that promotes social justice. We are seeking this personal and professional growth through many avenues including honest, ongoing discussions within our department, as well as by dedicated training by experts in these fields.
