|The core mission of the Geisinger Medical Center Urology Residency Program is to develop empathetic urologic surgeons who possess an in depth understanding of the pathophysiology of urologic illness and an ability to critically evaluate and then master the ever evolving modalities for treating those illnesses.|
The unique position of Geisinger Health System as the predominant provider of health services to a large rural population insures that the urology residents will be exposed to a wide variety of clinical presentations of urologic disease. The mixed rural and urban patient population provides educational opportunities for the development of interpersonal and communication skills that allow the resident to successfully manage illness within the context of the patient’s social, emotional and economic situation.
|The Department of Urology in the Geisinger Health System is committed to the application of new diagnostic and therapeutic approaches to urologic diseases such as cancer, voiding dysfunction and urolithiasis. This commitment is closely integrated with a growing program in outcomes research.|
