Description and Goals:

The Division of Urology offers a rotation, which will afford the Senior Student an in-depth exposure to all aspects of clinical urology. The student will be assigned the clinical responsibility of direct patient care compatible with a PG-1 and assume "on call" rotation with the Urology residents. The student will provide direct patient care and will demonstrate independent thinking and clinical decision making under the direct supervision of the Urology faculty and Urology house staff. Daily activities will include outpatient clinic, where the student will participate in the diagnostic evaluation and management of urologic problems and the operating room where the student will assume the role of an assistant. The range of urologic exposure will include pediatric and adult urology as well as transplantation.
