Residency Training in Urology
The urology residency program at Indiana University School of Medicine Department of Urology offers a broad spectrum of urology experience in a five-year program that includes six months of general surgery intern training. This program is consistently ranked in the top 15 in the nation by the Doximity Residency Navigator and US News & World Report Ranking.
Urology residents gain experience at five training sites on the downtown Indianapolis campus focusing on clinical training and research. They also spend time improving teaching, writing and speaking skills to further their careers. Residents also have the option to enhance their skills through a global experience.
Applications for the urology residency program are done through the American Urological Association (AUA) and the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS). Applicants must register with both. Applicants only need to register for the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP) if they are applying to other specialties that require it. Applications must be completed prior to September 15. Interview invitations are sent through ERAS.
Away rotations are a great way to see how different programs work. It can also be helpful in obtaining letters of recommendation, because it provides an opportunity to work with faculty. Away rotations are arranged through the Visiting Student Application Service (VSAS).
