Didactics, Research, Extramural Activities


The fellow will be involved in all clinical research activities with mentorship by the faculty. The research experience is diverse – ranging from small single-institutional cohort series with assessment of novel techniques to larger scale multi-institutional studies relevant to genitourinary trauma and reconstruction. Other investigations focus on patient reported outcome measures in both female and male reconstructive/prosthetic patient populations. In sum, the fellow will be provided with a broad range of projects that are ongoing or planned pertinent to fellowship training and a future career in academics. The fellow will be supported to present abstracts at regional, national, and international urology meetings with an ultimate goal of manuscript preparation/submission.
