COVID-19 Update for Residency Applicants

Given the restrictions of the COVID 19 pandemic, the application timeline, rotations, and interviews will be affected. We are committed to students who are interested in our excellent program and will continue to lead and innovate to make the process smooth and meaningful.

Here are the highlights:

Virtual Sub-internships

Visiting students interested in our program will have the option to participate in a virtual sub-internship experience. The experience will include simulated patients/telehealth, virtual operating room (live and recorded cases), reflective writing, didactics, and presentation. We will do our best to give you a comprehensive learning experience as well as help you get a feel of our culture, leadership, and mentorship philosophies. You can apply for vSUBi via VSAS.

Away Rotations

The Urology Program at KU will not be accepting visiting students. Exceptions are given based on the guidance provided by Coalition for Physician Accountability to:

  • Learners who have a specialty interest and do not have access to a clinical experience with a residency program in that specialty in their school's system.
  • Learners for whom an away rotation is required for graduation or accreditation requirements.

Individuals meeting these exceptions should limit the number of away rotations as much as possible. Students should consider geographically proximate programs, when appropriate, to meet learning needs.

Residency Interviews

Our program is committed to online interviews and virtual visits for all applicants, including local students, rather than in-person interviews for the entire cycle.

ERAS Timeline

ERAS for residency programs will have a delayed release of the MSPE on October 21, 2020.

The Society for Academic Urology will be holding important informational sessions soon on sub-internships, the interview process, the match timeline, and ERAS. We will then be able to inform you about interview dates as well as the match timeline.

There will also be informational sessions and webinars for residency candidates. You can check back at our website as well as and
