About us

The Endourology Fellowship program is a two-year postgraduate course designed to train urologists with plans to pursue an academic career. The two-year program integrates clinical and research work in stone disease, urologic oncology, reconstructive surgery and ureteral strictures.  The fellow will have attending privileges as junior staff/ clinical instructor appointments.
