The University of Louisville Urology Residency Program was awarded a 10-year, full-cycle ACGME accreditation in June, 2012. We are honored to be recognized for our achievement and look forward to an exciting future at the University of Louisville! Through the collective efforts of a dedicated team of professors, residents, and support staff, and under the guidance of our program director and chairman, Dr. Murali K. Ankem, the program is emerging as one of the most desirable programs in the region.

The University of Louisville Urology Residency Program received full accreditation from the Urology Residency Review Committee of the ACGME in December 2008. Our five teaching hospitals include: University of Louisville Hospital, Norton Hospital, Norton Children’s Hospital, Louisville Veterans Administration Hospital, and Jewish/Saints Mary and Elizabeth Hospital.

The residency provides comprehensive urology training in urological oncology, incontinence and female urology, male infertility and men’s sexual health, pediatric urology, stone disease, robotics and minimally invasive urology, geriatric urology, trauma and reconstructive urological surgery, rehabilitation urology and general urology.

The University of Louisville is committed to developing a top tier urology residency program that will carry on the tradition of excellence established in the past. We currently have a total of eight residents and have been approved for a complement of ten. The primary goal of this residency program is to produce urologists competent to practice state of the art urology and who will be prepared to continue life-long continuing education. Graduates will have the necessary didactic and technical and clinical exposure necessary to meet the requirements for certification by the American Board of Urology (patient care and medical knowledge). Graduates interested in pursuing a career in academic medicine, medical research, or fellowship training within a sub-specialty of urology will have the appropriate preparation for additional training or successful entry into their chosen career path.

All graduates will have a broad exposure to and understanding of the moral, ethical and regulatory aspects of establishing and conducting a successful urological practice (professionalism and systems based practice). This includes education in medical administration (systems-based practice), leadership, interpersonal and communication skills, the tenets of life-long professional development (professionalism), and the ability to function successfully in today’s medical environment (systems-based practice).

Proudly, The University of Louisville Urology Residency Program continues to flourish. For more information on the history of the program, click here.
