How to Apply
Our program is approved by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education for four residents per year. We are a categorical program and applicants match with us starting at the PGY-1 level. We participate in the American Urological Association (AUA) Office of Education Matching Program.
Our AUA Residency Matching Identification Number is: 00923319. We select our applicants from the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS®). To register, visit the resident section on the AUA website. We encourage applicants to register early with both ERAS and the AUA Urology Matching Program.
We intend to train outstanding clinical and academic urologists. Many of our graduates have moved on to complete fellowships at a variety of prestigious institutions, including Virginia Mason Medical Center, the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, MD Anderson Cancer Center, Vanderbilt University, USC, Mayo Clinic, the University of California-San Diego and John Hopkins.
Our residents are expected to actively participate in research projects for publication and presentation at regional and national meetings. Residents do have a dedicated three-month research block to start developing projects and learn methods. Research facilities are available for clinical or basic research. While funds for research are available through the medical center, the Department of Urology also has its own funding sources.
We have two applicant interview days each year. Applicants will be able to meet the faculty members as well as the residents. Interviewees should plan to be here by 7:30 a.m. and will be finished for the day by 3 p.m. Breakfast and lunch are provided. Applicants have the opportunity to interview with most, if not all, of our faculty members. They also have the opportunity to visit with our residents from all PGY levels. A tour of our facility and surrounding areas is also conducted. You should allow 30-45 minutes to travel to the Kansas City Airport (MCI).
Students who have rotated with us during their fourth year will not be invited for an interview and their rotation would have served as the interview. The same application process should be followed for applications, rank lists and procedures.
Applicants should communicate directly with the AUA Office of Education to obtain your matching number and information concerning our match.
