M.D. program instruction in the field of urology begins in the M.D. Year I with the physical diagnosis course. Students receive lecture and laboratory instruction on the male genitourinary physical examination. Instruction continues in Year III with a series of lectures. Students receive these lectures as part of their general surgery curriculum. These lectures incorporate the fundamental concepts of the disease processes which affect the genito-urinary system. The lectures attempt to integrate the physiologic and anatomic mechanisms of urological disorders, their clinical presentations, and contemporary treatment strategies and outcomes. Clinical electives in urology are offered to students in their third/junior and fourth/senior years of medical school training. The electives are arranged in four week blocks. Rotations on the urology service can be tailored to the individual student. Students may also spend time in the various office clinics within the Department of Urology to broaden their experience.
