About the Department

The objective of the George Washington University School of Medicine and Health Sciences (GW SMHS) Urology Residency Program is to produce urologists of the highest quality with the knowledge, clinical acumen and surgical skills to care for the entire spectrum of urologic disease. We believe in a rigorous academic training program with a strong didactic schedule, a busy surgical caseload with exposure to basic science and clinical research experience. Emphasis will be placed on instructing the residents on the importance of a strong physician-patient relationship and delivering care with compassion. 

The goal of the GW SMHS Residency faculty is to make each of our finishing residents professionally competent as defined by the following: “The habitual and judicious use of communications, knowledge, technical skills, clinical reasoning, emotions, values and reflection in daily practice for the benefit of the individual and the community being served.” (Epstein, R. JAMA 287(2): 226-235, 2002)
