Dedicated to Education
The faculty members who comprise our teaching faculty dedicate the majority of their academic effort to teaching and mentoring the superior urology residents in our department. As we deliver high quality and compassionate patient care, we strive to create a training atmosphere centered on mutual respect, collegiality, humanism, and innovation.
The UAMS Urology Residency Training Program is an ACGME accredited five-year categorical residency. We match two residents into our training program each year, giving us a total of 10 residents.
The Department of Urology Residency Training Program participates in the National Residency Match Program (NRMP) and only accepts applications for our training program through Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS®).
There are three training sites in our program: The UAMS Medical Center, the John L. McClellan Memorial Veterans Hospital, and Arkansas Children’s Hospital. Members of the teaching faculty are actively involved at each teaching site and provide omnipresent direct supervision to residents. Formal teaching conferences are conducted for two hours weekly following a four-year teaching calendar. Extensive outpatient, in-patient and operative experiences are achieved through rotations throughout our three teaching hospitals. All residents participate in clinical research experiences.
