residencies

A residency in the Department of Urology at The Ohio State University is a challenging and rewarding experience that entails a complex interaction of learning through patient care. It requires maintenance of a balance between the educational and clinical responsibilities, as well as dedication to learning and personal excellence. Dr. Cheryl T. Lee is the chair of the Department of Urology, and Dr. David Sharp is the residency director. Three internships are offered each year.

Urology residents are selected by a competitive process and are chosen through the match program administered by the American Urological Association's Office of Education. All applications are internally reviewed to selectively invite candidates for the interview process. At the conclusion of the interview process, faculty members meet to discuss the strengths and weaknesses of the candidates, and the rank order is submitted to the AUA Office of Education. Candidates must be registered with the AUA Residency Match.

The Department of Urology at Ohio State offers a pre-urology year prior to the urology program. During this first year, residents rotate through different surgical disciplines, with a heavy emphasis on pre- and post-operative care of inpatient surgical patients.

The PGY2 year is the first full year in Urology. This involves six months at the James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute, four months on the Gray Service and two months on the Scarlet Service. There are four months at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center on the Buckeye Service and two months at Ohio State University Hospital East.

The PGY3 year is the second full year in Urology and involves a two-month rotation at University Hospital East, a two-month rotation at the James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute Scarlet Service, a two-month rotation on the Buckeye Service at the Ohio State Wexner Medical Center, a four-month rotation at Nationwide Children's Hospital, and two months on the Consult Service. 

During the PGY4 year, the residents spend two months at the Ohio State Wexner Medical Center on the Buckeye Service, eight months at the James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute on the Scarlet and Gray Service, and two months on the Consult Service. 

The chief resident year, PGY5, incorporates four months at the Ohio State Wexner Medical Center on the Buckeye Service, and four months on the Scarlet Service and four months on the Gray Service at the James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute.
