Welcome from Program Director

William Hulbert, MD
Urology Residency
Program Director

Thank you for considering our program for your urology residency training. We want our residents to discover and develop their talents and interests, both professionally and personally; we provide that space and opportunity by means of our people, curricular structure and commitment to collaborative education. The full-time faculty, volunteer faculty and our residents are passionate about Urology and our program.

The program includes a preliminary year of general surgery training, four years of Urology, and a PGY4 fully supported year of research. The training covers all aspects of adult and pediatric urology in a comfortable, supportive learning environment that is continuously improved through collaboration between residents, faculty and the rest of the departmental team. The program is accredited by the ACGME, with immediate eligibility to take the American Board of Urology Qualifying Exam upon completion.

We base the training on the ACGME competencies model; there is extensive experience in patient care, including outstanding surgical skill and judgment training, as well as medical management. Teaching and learning is a progressive multiple-avenue process that incorporates inpatient and deliberate outpatient continuity experience supervised by a faculty composed of nationally known physicians.

Several of our department members are among the national leaders in minimally invasive/robotic urologic surgery and oncologic urology. Our residents receive superior adult and pediatric minimally invasive training that has allowed our more recent graduates to initiate and lead urologic robotics programs as they begin their careers.

Our residents are a talented and diverse group, sharing commonalities including team cohesion, as well as the desire and passion to learn, teach and explore. Guided by the needs of our patients, families, staff and trainees, we are committed to delivering patient and family-centered care to all.
