Throughout the pediatric urology fellowship program at Indiana University School of Medicine, fellows obtain a thorough knowledge in pediatric urology. A structured curriculum is provided with weekly conferences, including regular multi-disciplinary conferences, indications conferences, complex case conferences, journal club, and morbidity and mortality conferences.
Research conferences are held monthly with all staff, and bimonthly research meetings are held to present progress on research. Fellows are expected to participate in research projects during both years of the fellowship. A dedicated list of research projects and timelines are created to ensure productivity.
Learning objectives include performing bladder reconstruction, bowel continence surgery, complex genital reconstruction, endourology procedures, neurourology and urodynamics procedures, robotic upper and lower urinary tract reconstruction, and ureteral reconstruction. Fellows also learn to care for patients experiencing conditions such as hypospadias, undescended testicles, spina bifida and more.
