The Urology Residency faculty is comprised of clinicians from both academic and private practice. As such, the resident is exposed to a balance of academic and private practice urology. The Sparrow Hospital Urology Residency program includes a wide scope, variety, and volume of surgical hands-on training, balanced with non-operative clinical training, education, academics, and scholarly activity.
Those who have visited and completed clinical rotations with our training program have appreciated a strong resident culture which supports teamwork and commitment to each of their fellow residents. This is a reflection our resident selection process; searching for higher caliber candidates with strong academics and a sense of responsibility for their fellow resident’s success. We make every effort to identify candidates who possess qualities of professionalism, compassion, work ethic, and dedication to our program.
