The Fellowship program is part of the Department of Surgery, Section of Urology at the University of Chicago.
Officially commencing in July, 2003 with the first fellow Gary Chien, MD , the Endourology fellowship has grown dramatically. Dr. Gary Chien is now the Director of the Endourological Fellowship at Kaiser Permanente in California. Currently, 2 fellows are trained annually with large surgical volume, animal based research and prospective clinical database outcomes research. Initially a 1-year Society of Endourology fellowship certified program, the current fellowship is a 2-year commitment. As of the 2009 academic year, all Endourology fellows will need to complete a 2-year program in order to be certified by the society.
Since July 2007, our minimally invasive uro-oncology team has been approved by the Society of Urologic Oncology (SUO) to train 1 fellow per year with a 2 year commitment. Both clinical and bench research are required for certification.
