Program Curriculum

On July 1, 2016, the Mount Sinai Urology Residency Program and the Mount Sinai Beth Israel Urology Residency Program will merge to form one program under the auspices of the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, with The Mount Sinai Hospital as its home institution.  The new program is authorized by the ACGME to recruit four residents per year.  There are currently five residents enrolled in PGY-2, PGY-3, and PGY-4 of the combined programs—three per year at Mount Sinai and two per year at Beth Israel.  As the curriculum develops and the faculty continues to expand in key areas, we intend to return to the ACGME with a request to increase the permanent complement to five.

The 2016-2017 curriculum includes rotations of thirteen weeks for the PGY-5 residents and ten weeks for the remaining trainees.  The rotations will take place at The Mount Sinai Hospital (MSH), Mount Sinai St. Luke’s and Mount Sinai West, Elmhurst Hospital Center (Elmhurst), Queens Hospital Center (Queens), and Mount Sinai Beth Israel (MSBI).

With the possible exception of the Medical Uro-oncology Statistics and Study Design rotation in PGY-3, the residents on all rotations and at all levels of training will treat outpatients and inpatients, perform surgery, and take call.  Residents on rotation at MSH and MSBI will typically provide call coverage only at their respective rotation sites, while those on rotation at Mount Sinai St.Luke’s and Mount Sinai West, Elmhurst and Queens will form a single pool covering both Mount Sinai St.Luke’s and Mount Sinai West and Elmhurst. Residents do not take call at Queens.

Rotations include the following areas of concentration:
