Integrating Clinical Training & Research
Thank you for your interest in the pediatric urology fellowship at Primary Children’s Hospital and the University of Utah. The training program is two years in length and is designed to uniquely integrate clinical training and research in a very functional way. During the entire duration of the program, the fellow will have 60 percent clinical and 40 percent research time allocations. This allows for ongoing progress on both fronts and for a full two years to hone skills in each realm in a realistic way. This provides an experience that will be similar to what a research-oriented pediatric urologist could expect as a faculty member in most academic institutions.
Facility & Patient Volume
We feel that both
Our group of pediatric urologists decided to offer fellowship training here only after we felt that we could truly provide all of the various needed training elements and exposures for that would make a fellow’s experience here unique and exceptional.
Our program offers a unique integrated schedule that permits clinical and research experience during both years of fellowship. We feel that this more closely mimics the ‘real life’ practice of an academic pediatric urologist. The fellow will spend an average of two days each week in pursuit of hypothesis-driven basic or clinical science research. The fellow is given the flexibility to schedule these days based on operative schedules and research timelines.
