At UNC Urology we are looking for residents with integrity, an excellent intellectual foundation, and who possess a strong work ethic and the ability to function in a dynamic team of caregivers. We expect residents to be leaders in the excellent patient care provided at UNC and its affiliated institutions. Our residents serve as ambassadors of our group locally, regionally, and nationally, and as educators in our medical school.
In order to be eligible for our urology residency training program, an applicant must:
- Be a US citizen or hold a valid US immigration VISA that permits employment in the United States. The UNC Department of Urology does not provide sponsorship for any type of immigration VISA.
- Successfully complete all United States Medical Licensing Examination (USMLE) requirements or, if a foreign medical graduate, all Educational Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates (ECFMG) requirements.
- Successfully complete a one year internship in a General Surgery program designated by UNC Department of Urology.
Each year, three new residents are accepted. Approximately 50 applicants are selected for personal interviews. In 2014, interviews will be conducted on November 5 and November 17. If you have completed a prior 4th year rotation at UNC Department of Urology, you will not need to return for an interview.
Positions are offered through the American Urological Association and applications must be submitted using the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS) system. These are categorical positions which include the internship year.
