The first (clinical) year is conducted under the supervision of seven pediatric urology attending physicians at two Children’s campuses. An interdisciplinary approach is employed, particularly in the care of patients with cancer and neurogenic bladder dysfunction.
Competency is developed in all major areas of pediatric urology practice including:
- Fluid and electrolyte management
- Genitourinary reconstructive surgery
- Neurogenic bladder dysfunction
- Obstructive uropathy
- Perinatal urology
- Urinary tract infection
- Voiding dysfunction
The second (research) year involves molecular genetic approaches to investigation of developmental processes. It is conducted under the mentorship of Leland Chung, Ph.D., Professor and Director, Molecular Urology and Therapeutics Program at Emory.
Applicants must have completed an accredited residency in general urology prior to entering the fellowship program. Typically, applicants are interviewed during postgraduate year (PGY)-4 (senior resident year) of their urology residency and commitments are made through the American Urological Association (AUA) supported match.
