Surgery Education

Our urology residency is a five-year teaching program that encompasses all phases of adult and pediatric urology, leading to American Board of Urology certification eligibility.

Urology Residency Program


Our faculty are actively involved in state-of-the-art clinical and basic science research projects, and our research has been published in numerous peer-reviewed publications. We also work directly with two laboratories investigating bladder smooth muscle physiology and urologic tissue engineering.

From the Chair

“One of the things that excites me the most about VCU Urology is our commitment to cutting-edge laparoscopic and robotic surgery. Using the da Vinci surgical robot, our surgeons are able to perform highly skilled and precise operations through small incisions. We are unique to this region in that we have two board-certified, fellowship-trained robotic surgeons.”
