5-Year ACGME-Accredited Program
12 Months of Pre-Urology/48 Months of Clinical Urology
3 Applicants Accepted Annually

The first year of our urology residency program is spent in General Surgery while the last four years are spent in Urology. The pre-urology year is provided by the University of Tennessee in Memphis from the Department of Surgery. Supervision of the PGY-1 year resident is a joint responsibility of the Departments of Surgery and Urology. Rotations during this year are established by the Department of Urology, but do include trauma.

Medical students interested in visiting our program for an elective rotation should contact the program coordinator.

Selection Criteria

Positions are offered through the National Residency Matching Program (NRMP). All applications must be submitted through ERAS.

A complete application consists of:

Should you match into our urology residency, you will automatically be placed into the pre-urology general surgery segment. It is not necessary for you to apply separately or to interview with the Department of Surgery, although such an interview can be arranged, if desired. It will be necessary, however, for you to remain in the match for the pre-urology general surgery match.
