University of Nebraska Medical Center

Urologic Surgery Residency

Our purpose is to train future urologists by providing opportunities to develop skills necessary to practice in the clinic and the operating room while also providing superior urologic care for the people of Nebraska.

Our educational philosophy is to provide a broad-based educational experience with in-depth basic science, research, and clinical experience in current methodologies of general urologic surgery. Guided by the principles of excellence in education, research and quality patient care, the resident will mature for a lifetime of continuing education and learning in an atmosphere designed to promote ethical, compassionate care of the whole patient. 

The University of Nebraska Medical Center's urologic surgery residency program is a five-year post-graduate education program. The first year of the program consists of six months of general surgery and six months of urologic surgery training followed by four years dedicated to urologic surgery training. Residents will practice in four area hospitals: our main clinical partner Nebraska Medicine, Omaha VA Hospital, Children's Nebraska and Methodist Hospital.

Residents will be exposed to research to gain both research experience and understanding of the basic principles of study design, performance, analysis and reporting, including statistics and epidemiology.

Residents will be required to participate in a comprehensive, organized course of study, involving regularly scheduled conferences including: morbidity and mortality for all participating hospitals, urologic radiology, urologic pathology, journal review, and systematic review of basic and clinical domains of urology. Urology studies will include andrology, infertility, impotence, sexuality, calculus disease, endourology, extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy, female urology, infectious disease, neurourology, obstructive disease, oncology, pediatric urology, psychological disorders, renal vascular disease, surgery of the adrenal, renal transplantation, trauma and urodynamics. Members of the faculty participate in clinical discussions, rounds and conferences, promoting a spirit of inquiry and an in-depth understanding of basic mechanisms of normal and abnormal states and the application of current knowledge of practice.

The Division of Urologic Surgery selects two residents each year. We will begin accepting applications when Electronic Residency Application System opens. Visit our application page for additional information. Interviews will be conducted for invitees only.
