Our urology department places a large emphasis on providing great research opportunities to residents. Each resident spends 4 months at the National Institute for Health Urologic Oncology Branch during the PGY-2 year. During that time, residents are exposed to cutting-edge urologic oncology research, in which they can continue to participate throughout their residency. With the move to a five-year program, residents will also have a dedicated research block during the PGY-3 or PGY-4 year moving forward.
The program also hosts quarterly department-wide research meetings and a monthly urologic oncology research meeting. During those conferences, faculty present ongoing research projects and current clinical trials. Residents can also propose their research ideas to the department.
Each year our residents’ research is presented at the Mid-Atlantic regional AUA meeting as well as the national AUA conference. Residents have also presented at various subspecialty society meetings including the Society of Urologic Oncology, Society of Urodynamics, Female Pelvic Medicine, and Urogenital Reconstruction, and the Society of Pediatric Urology.
All residents are expected to complete at least one meaningful research project during their residency.
