NYU Grossman School of Medicine offers an Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME)–accredited Urology Residency that provides training across our world-class facilities with our faculty, who are renowned both nationally and internationally. Under the direction of Jamie A. Kanofsky, MD, our highly selective five-year program accepts four applicants each year.
NYU Langone’s Department of Urology, a leader in teaching and research, continues a tradition of urologic education that began in the 19th century. In our residency program, trainees gain expertise in all aspects of medical and surgical care, master the interpretation of clinical and research data, and develop a compassionate approach to patient care.
Our residency provides clinical education and research opportunities in the following subspecialties:
- general urology
- urologic oncology
- minimally invasive surgery, including laparoscopic and robotic approaches
- endourology and stone disease
- pediatric urology
- female pelvic medicine and reconstructive surgery
- gender confirmation
- voiding dysfunction and incontinence
- erectile dysfunction, male infertility, and microsurgery
- urologic trauma
Residents spend the first (intern) year of the training program completing both general surgery and urology rotations, and years two through five in urology. During year three, residents also conduct clinical research with a faculty mentor in a subspecialty of their choice.
Progressive Autonomy for Residents
Our curriculum and training are designed to provide progressive autonomy. Responsibilities—which include patient care, teaching, and administration—increase with each year of education. This approach enables trainees to become independent, responsible urologists with sound clinical judgment and the ability to carry out appropriate management plans.
NYU Langone urology residents consistently score well on in-service and board examinations. In addition, graduating residents who are interested in fellowship training typically match in the fellowship program of their choice.
