Program Description

The Urology Residency program at Naval Medical Center San Diego has a rich tradition of producing outstanding Urologists who have gone on to become leaders in the military and civilian Urology community. Located in Balboa Park in the heart of San Diego, NMCSD is a tertiary referral center and teaching hospital.

Urology residents rotate through every sub-specialty Urology service at NMCSD during the 5-year program. They also rotate at local hospitals. During their PGY-2 year, residents rotate at Kaiser and nearby San Diego Male Fertility and Sexual Medicine center.  As a PGY-3, they complete a pediatric rotation at Rady Children’s Hospital and return to Kaiser for Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery. During their PGY-4 year, they rotate at Kaiser, Rady and Sharp locations. As a PGY-5, they gain additional training at Kaiser and Sharp.

The Urology department has a productive research department that allows residents ample opportunity to publish high quality research during their residency. Graduates go on to serve as Navy Urologists in a variety of locations throughout the world. Many graduates go on to receive additional sub-specialty fellowship training at premier institutions. Over the past few years, graduates have gone on to fellowships at institutions such as Johns Hopkins, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, and Cincinnati Children’s Hospital.
