Courses      Clerkships


Description
Consists of a four-week period during which students are involved in an overview of urology and its subspecialties through daily clinics, ward work, and the operating room. This clerkship exposes a student to general and specialty based urology (oncology, female neurourology, pediatric urology, endourology, and minimally invasive surgery, make sexual dysfunction). During the clerkship, students learn broad concepts regarding the evaluation, diagnosis, and management of the common diseases of the genitourinary tract. Students in this clerkship are an integral part of the service. Every effort is made to provide students with as much personal contact with faculty and residents as is possible and appropriate for positive patient care. The daily clinics of the various faculty expose students to ambulatory urological care and provide them with an opportunity to take urologic histories and physicals. Students are expected to take part in patient ward care and to attend at surgery on those patients observed on the ward. Students are expected to attend weekly patient care conferences, research conferences, Journal Club, and Grand Rounds and read suggested literature. Students will be required to give one lecture on a urologic subject of their choosing during this rotation. Please note: This is not a Sub-I clerkship.
