Comprehensive Training & Hands-On Surgical Experience
Welcome to the University of Utah Urology residency home page! We are glad you are here and hope we can help you get to know us on the following pages.
The University of Utah Urology residency program provides comprehensive training in all aspects of urology. We offer extensive hands-on surgical experience in both open and minimally invasive approaches. Our faculty are dedicated to making you into a superior urologist, able to handle the most complex open and minimally invasive cases, while still being a caring and compassionate physician. We offer diverse training in every aspect of urologic care. The University of Utah is known nationally for high quality patient care and we mirror that with our urology training program. We encourage an environment which will stimulate learning in all of our residents and medical students.
While education and training is our primary focus for our residency, we have a diverse research program that is transforming how we provide urologic care today. Residents are encouraged to participate in these opportunities to enable them to become well-rounded urologists, regardless of your career destination.
Accreditation & Facilities
In 2015, the University of Utah urology residency program was reaccredited for a ten-year period. Our current resident complement alternates between matching two residents one year and three residents the following year, and we are a five year program. Residents receive extensive operative and clinic experience at an excellent combination of hospitals:
- University Hospital
- Huntsman Cancer Hospital & Institute
- Primary Children's Hospital
- Intermountain Medical Center
- George E. Wahlen Veterans Affairs Medical Center
This combination of facilities provides optimal exposure to the full breadth of urologic disorders and each runs a busy clinical service. Our anchor hospital, the University Hospital, is tertiary care, regional referral hospital for five intermountain states. The university clinics offer excellent and diverse patient care.
We invite you to look over our diverse areas of faculty research and the specific clinical services in urology we offer through University Health Care. In addition feel free to contact us about your future as a resident in the division of urology.
