Welcome to the UNC Urology Residency Program,

UNC Urology is a top-ranked, dynamic clinical residency training site. Our program offers access to train with talented faculty-physicians, a collaborative learning culture with demonstrated camaraderie among all levels, a proven success rate at preparing residents to matriculate into the most competitive fellowships (for those interested in further specialization), and well-rounded training for the graduating general urologist.

We hope you take the time to explore this website and learn more about UNC, the program, and the people that make us so unique.
