Frequently Asked Questions

The Department of Urology looks for a team player who will fulfill his/her potential both clinically and academically during the program.

A rotation only dedicated to research is not possible in a five-year program. However, there are two three-month flex rotations in the third and fourth years. This time is used for research, covering other residents on vacation and other elective work, including training in andrology.

In house call is only for residents in the University Hospital and Riley Hospital for Children rotations. The on call resident does not work the day after call. Residents in the Methodist, VA Hospital and Eskenazi Hospital rotations take home call.

In addition to the generous benefits available to all residents and fellows at IU School of Medicine through the Office of Graduate Medical Education, Department of Urology residents enjoy an educational stipend ($1500-$2750 depending on year) to help pay for books and other educational items, conference travel and so forth. Urology residents also get four weeks of vacation each year (residents can take vacation at either Christmas or New Year’s) as well as parking passes and on-call meal tickets.
