Students in the Urology elective program will become familiar with the general urologic practice. They will develop the understanding and knowledge to evaluate patients and manage their care medically and surgically.
Students will gain exposure to inpatient and outpatient care practices. They will learn the different diagnostics as well as learn how to evaluate patients' conditions. Students will have the opportunity to observe surgical cases as well as office consultations. They will work closely with residents and attending physicians to learn about the many subspecialties in urology, such as:
- Sexual dysfunction
- Urinary incontinence
- Urologic oncology
- Pediatric urology
Students will attend case conferences and round with physicians and residents, so that they will have a chance to observe urology from the time a patient is seen in consultation to the end of their case. Students will learn diagnostics, treatment options, surgical procedures and follow-up care.
