Department and Faculty
The Department of Urology provides the best possible care, including consultation, diagnosis and treatment, to male and female patients with all malignant and benign urologic diseases in both pediatric and adult age groups. At Mayo Clinic's Arizona campus, the Department of Urology consists of nine urologic surgeons and two office urologists.
As an integrated practice, the Department of Urology is supported by many laboratories, subspecialty clinics, preventive health programs, basic and clinical research programs and by continuing education programs. Mayo Clinic urologists are able to offer patients the latest in new diagnostic techniques, drugs and interventions.
In addition to caring for patients in clinical practice, Mayo Clinic's faculty is committed to teaching and facilitating the growth of medical knowledge. Many of our faculty members have published and lectured extensively and are highly regarded in their fields. You work closely with these individuals throughout your training in the Urology Residency.
Advisers and mentors
You choose a mentor to provide comprehensive educational advice and personal support. You meet with your adviser periodically throughout the program to review your progress and career goals, and ensure that your educational needs are being met. Your adviser may serve as a contact point for introducing you and your family to the Phoenix area, and the Mayo Clinic system.
Prominent adult and pediatric urologists visit Mayo Clinic each year. They present their work during lectures, participate in hospital rounds and have informal discussions with trainees. You are encouraged to take full advantage of these opportunities.
