Urologic Oncology Training Program

The educational program is designed to: 1) provide a broad knowledge of modern biomedical science; 2) provide didactic and experiential training in the intellectual and philosophical approach to modern investigation; 3) develop writing skills; 4) develop teaching skills; and 5) correct any deficiencies in past scientific training.

Clinical Segment

The clinical segment of this Fellowship allows participants to work and learn directly with the Department of Urology's Urologic Oncology team, one of the premier programs in its field nationally with expertise in urologic surgery, radiation oncology and medical oncology. 

Research Segment

Active laboratory programs include work in the areas of prostate cancer genetics, gene discovery, metastasis, biomarker discovery, therapeutic development, and prostate and bladder cell biology. Recently, research has expanded broadly into specific evaluation of quality-of-life outcomes analyses for localized and metastatic bladder and prostate cancers.
