Urology Residency

Welcome to the Urology Residency program at the Detroit Medical Center (DMC). Our program consists of 13 ACGME faculty urologists, a large group of affiliated attending urologists, 15 residents, ancillary and administrative staff, and researchers, all dedicated to providing the best training and health care possible.

The residency at the DMC is focused on producing a well-trained urologist capable of entering private practice or continuing on in a fellowship of their choosing. The curriculum is created on rotations through the DMC hospitals and St. Joseph Oakland Mercy Hospital, offering a balanced and board experience of urologic cases including female incontinence, andrology, pediatric and trauma. Robotic surgery has a presence at several of the hospitals with state of the art equipment.

Didactics are intertwined with a busy surgery schedule, including weekly Grand Rounds, monthly Tumor Boards and monthly Journal Club. During the calendar year there are regular programs at the hospitals and state and regional meeting which residents participate in. Finally there are the national and international meetings: AUA Annual, AUA North Central Section, SUFU and others which may fit into the residents schedule for presentations and board review. Current policies include support for one major even each year.

There is a high priority on education, self-development and camaraderie.
