We are excited to welcome Colton H. Walker, MD as our 2022-2024 Urologic Oncology Fellow.
Originally from Louisiana, Dr. Walker completed his medical education at Louisiana State University in New Orleans where he was inducted into both the Alpha Omega Alpha and Gold Humanism honor societies. He is currently completing his urology residency at the University of Michigan. He has a specific interest in increasing access to and quality of cancer care in underserved populations and has worked extensively with the Michigan Urological Surgery Improvement Collaborative. He hopes to build upon this work in North Carolina during his fellowship.
UNC Urology’s Urologic Oncology Fellowship is a 2-year program accredited by the Society of Urologic Oncology. It provides rich multidisciplinary exposure to the management of genitourinary (GU) malignancies and mentored career development in health services research, clinical trials, and translational research. Dr. Walker will join Dr. Ibardo Zambrano and Dr. Katherine Gessner as the program’s third fellow.
