Established in 1979 by Alan Retik, MD, the Department of Urology continues its mission to provide the best clinical and research training experience in pediatric urology.
We offer a three-year fellowship experience for two fellows per year. The first two years are dedicated to basic science or clinical research. The third year, accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME), is devoted to clinical training.
Faculty members are also involved in numerous educational programs, courses and research projects.
