Dear Urology Applicant:

Thank you for your interest in the urology residency training program at the University of California, Davis.

The urology residency is a five-year program.  The five years of urology are divided among the UC Davis Health, Veterans Affairs Northern California Health Care System, local Kaiser Permanente Hospitals and the Shriner's Hospital for Children.  Residents will also do 6 months of General Surgery in the Uro 1 year.  A comprehensive education and surgical training is provided in all areas of pediatric and adult urology.

The UC Davis program offers specialty training in urologic oncology, neurourology and reconstruction, endourology/laparoscopy, pediatrics, robotic surgery, impotence and infertility. The opportunity to pursue both clinical and basic science research is offered and encouraged during your training with dedicated time provided for research during the Uro 3 or 4 years. We take pride in providing a comprehensive education in urology in a collegial working environment.

The urology faculty will review completed application packets, and qualified applicants will be invited for an interview. As our program participates in the American Urological Association Residency Matching Program using the ERAS system (ID#00923287), the interview process will be complete with three interview dates.

If you have further questions after reviewing this material, please feel free to contact our residency coordinator, Mireya Montelongo at 916-734-2893 or mmontelongo@ucdavis.edu.
