The Department of Urology Residency Program

The Department of Urology Residency Program

The Urology graduate program is a five-year residency accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME). We are approved for a maximum of 10 residents with two categorical positions each year. The educational mission for the urology residency program is to provide a well-balanced training program capable of training residents for careers in clinical or academic urology. To reach this goal, we believe all residents should participate in significant research as well as have extensive experience with both inpatient and outpatient evaluation and management of urologic patients with proper supervision.

Mission Statement
To provide the highest quality urologic care to the population of East Tennessee and the surrounding region, to investigate their problems through innovation and research, and to educate those that serve them.

Vision Statement
To be a model of education and to contribute positively and thoughtfully to the greater good.

Department Values
Quality and Safety, Teamwork, Integrity, Innovation, Inclusion

The Learning Environment

The atmosphere of the department is one of dedication to the residents' education. The residents learn under a mentorship program, where they work closely with one faculty attending for an entire month, involving themselves in all aspects of the patients' care. This mentorship allows junior level residents to do cases that are normally reserved for the senior level residents. Urology residents rotate through two adult hospitals (one academic), the state’s largest children’s hospital and several private practices to gain experience in all aspects of urology.
