Each year, the Department of Urology at the University of Minnesota accepts new residents to train alongside our physicians. We aim to provide you with exceptional training in a variety of urologic conditions affecting both men and women.
We meet this goal by offering clinical experiences and academic opportunities within an integrated program. This provides you broad training, and assures flexibility within the program to meet your individual professional goals.
And because our experts conduct the most advanced procedures and leading-edge medical research necessary to battle some of today’s most complex urologic conditions, you'll get the type of training available in few sites worldwide.
Physicians will train you across a wide range of clinical specialties, such as female urology, reconstruction, infertility, incontinence, sexual dysfunction and urologic oncology. You'll also:
- Gain experience in performing laparoscopic procedures
- Treat both men and women
- Focus on patients of all ages
Within the Urology department, you choose from four main training sites across the region. Our partnerships with hospitals and clinics across Minnesota allow you to practice in a variety of settings. Before applying, you should review the Program Requirements for Residency Education in Urology. You'll also find them on the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education website.
