Urologic Oncology Fellowship

The Urologic Oncology Fellowship aims to create future leaders in the field of urologic oncology. The fellowship is composed of two years, one primarily consisting of research and one consisting of clinical training.

Research Training

The fellow will spend a year doing urologic oncology research. There are opportunities for outcomes research, decision modeling, translational research, artificial intelligence, basic science, and medical device development.

Clinical Training

The fellow will learn a multidisciplinary approach to all major urologic cancers including adrenal, renal, ureteral, bladder, prostate, penile and testicular. The fellow will also be trained to collaborate with gyn-oncologists and colorectal surgeons for combined large pelvic tumor surgeries.


The fellow will learn an individualized approach to selection of surgical approach with historical numbers demonstrating the surgical approach as follows: open (35%), endoscopic (11%) and laparoscopic/robotic (54%) surgery. The anticipated case volumes are as follows based on past fellow case logs:
