Program Curriculum

The Mount Sinai Urology Program is currently approved for a complement of five residents per training year. The program curriculum assures that over the course of training, every resident receives ample experience and didactic grounding in all of the core domains and techniques of urology while acquiring the professional skills and competencies that are characteristic of excellent physicians.  Each of the 19 rotations that comprise the curriculum include experience in both in-patient and out-patient treatment settings, with selected rotations offering concentrated experience in areas such as pediatric urology, urodynamics, endourology, female urology, infertility and oncology. An overarching schedule of conferences (led by faculty, fellow residents and guest lecturers), collaborative research projects and support for participation in professional organizations and special programs knit the residents’ clinical experience into the fabric of current urologic scholarship.

Our home and affiliated institutions offer an immersive experience in three distinct health care delivery models:  the tertiary care academic medical center, the community hospital and the municipal hospital system.  Our graduates finish the program with an enviable understanding of the options that are open to them, and well equipped to pursue the urology careers of their choosing.

The 2020 – 2021 urology curriculum includes rotations of thirteen weeks’ duration for the PGY4 residents, eight weeks for PGY-1 residents, and ten weeks for PGY2, PGY3 and PGY5 residents. The rotations take place at The Mount Sinai Hospital (MSH), Mount Sinai Morningside-West Hospital Center (MSMW), Elmhurst Hospital Center (Elmhurst), Queens Hospital Center (Queens) and Mount Sinai Beth Israel Medical Center (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 Morningside and Mount Sinai West, Elmhurst and Queens will form a single pool covering both Mount Sinai Morningside and Mount Sinai West and Elmhurst. Residents do not take call at Queens.

Rotations include the following areas of concentration:
