Teaching Activities: The Department of Urology teaches students throughout the four-year medical school curriculum. The fundamentals of urology as they relate to clinical practice are emphasized and the students are given a coordinated, integrated approach to diagnosing and treating the common urologic disorders.

Clerkships & Electives: During the third and fourth years, elective clinical clerkships are offered. Clinical instruction during these clerkships is provided by the full-time and clinical faculty with the assistance of the urology residents and fellows.

Residencies:  Tufts Medical Center offers a fully-accredited, postgraduate residency program. The clinical activities encompass all areas of the specialty of urology, including pediatric urology and renal transplantation.

The mission of the Maine Medical Center (MMC) Residency Program in Urology is to provide a rigorous and comprehensive postgraduate educational experience in the art and science of urology. The focus is clinically oriented with a strong foundation in all aspects of urology as well as quality and clinical outcomes research. After one year of general surgery, the four clinical years are structured to provide the resident with didactic teaching sessions in the pathophysiology of urologic disease processes, a gradual increase in clinical decision-making and responsibility, and progressive teaching of all technical skills required to be a complete urologic surgeon.

It is the objective of Lahey Clinic Residency Program in Urology to provide rigorous training in the art and science of clinical and basic science in Urology. This goal is achieved through a four-year, vertically integrated program in Urology. The Urology staff is committed to providing an environment that is conducive to training a complete urological surgeon who is prepared for a career in clinical and academic medicine. We attempt to educate our residents so that their technical skills will enable them to manage the most complex of surgical and cognitive problems, and ultimately, mold them into practitioners who provide the best possible care to patients in a setting of kindness and compassion.
