Urology Residency Program
The Urology Residency at UAB is a five year program, consisting of a one year surgical internship followed by four years of Urology. The residency offers exposure to all subspecialty areas of Urology including urologic oncology, pediatric urology, laparoscopy, neurourology/voiding dysfunction/female urology, stone disease/endourology, erectile dysfunction, male infertility and benign prostatic hyperplasia. The residents receive a diverse training experience. Residents rotate at four hospitals - University Hospital, Children's Hospital of Alabama, the Birmingham Veteran's Administration Medical Center, and UAB Highlands and also participate in an outpatient procedures/laboratory research rotation.
The faculty are approachable and are committed to resident education. Residents will be part of a collegial atmosphere which will facilitate learning. At the end of their training residents will have all options open to them. They can pursue fellowship training if they choose or they can enter practice, confident that they are qualified to evaluate and treat patients with urologic problems.
