All residents complete one year of general surgical training at Indiana University Medical Center before beginning their urology rotations. This is a 1:4 program. During the first year of general surgery training, rotations include pediatric surgery, surgical ICU, pediatric urology, adult urology and renal transplantation. Rotations begin in July.

Four applicants are chosen for entry into our urology program (PGY 1-5), each with the understanding of completion of training five years later. At any time, each hospital has one junior and one senior resident in urology.
