In accordance with the guidelines in place by the Georgetown University School of Medicine and the Society of Academic Urology, we will be participating in a virtual residency recruitment process. We invite any fourth-year medical student interested in our urology residency program to participate in our many virtual opportunities. We will be holding Hoya Happy Hours throughout the summer and fall to give applicants a sense of our program, faculty, and current residents.
