The Division of Urology participates in the American Urological Association Residency Matching Program.  Applications for residency training will be submitted via ERAS (Electronic Residency Application Service). Please contact your medical school dean's office for instructions on how to submit your application through ERAS.

Your ERAS application should include the following:

  • Dean's letter
  • School transcript
  • Letters of recommendation including at least two from surgeons or urologists at your medical school
  • National board scores for part I and, if available, part II
  • Research experience, which should be substantiated with reprints/abstracts if available and you are invited for an interview

You will also need to register for the AUA Residency Matching Program with credit card payment for the non-refundable registration fee to receive a registration number. This number should be given to each program with which you interview.

Information on available resources for spouses/partners of residents at the University of Utah can be obtained at the Partners in Medicine website. The site contains listings for housing, realtors and other valuable contact information.
