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).
