Urology Residency - MDs

Residency training in urology at Emory University is a five-year academic training program that includes one year of training in general surgery, followed by four years of training in urologic surgery. A portion of the first year—a three-month segment (25%) of the internship—is also allocated to urology training. Four residents per year are selected from a large applicant pool (350 applicants) through the urology match performed by the American Urological Association (AUA). Applicants are interviewed during their senior year of medical school and commitments are made through the AUA matching program.

All applications are processed through the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS) (Paper applications will not be accepted). Applicants matching in urology at Emory University are required to do their general surgery training at Emory University. Following completion of the urology match in January 2017, accepted residents will be matched through the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP) for the pre-urology training in General Surgery under the preliminary program urology match number at Emory University in March 2017.
