The goal of the AHN Urology Residency Program is to produce urologists with integrity and high ethical standards and of highest quality with the knowledge, clinical acumen and surgical skills to care for the entire spectrum of urologic disease. This goal is shared by our 8 full time faculty and 11 physician extenders.
Mastery of the six core competencies as designated by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) forms the blueprint for this community-based training. We believe in a rigorous academic training program with a strong didactic schedule and a busy surgical caseload with exposure to clinical research experience. Emphasis will be placed on instructing the residents on the importance of a strong physician-patient relationship and delivering care with compassion.
We expect residents trained in our program will practice Urology with personal integrity, high ethical standards and respect for the patients and their families entrusted in their care. The goal of the AHN Urology Residency faculty is to make each of our finishing residents professionally competent and ethically sound.
