Thank you for your interest in the Geisinger Urology Residency. We currently are a hospital-based residency with one resident a year complement. The Geisinger Health System is nationally recognized as an example of a successful integrated health system. All rotations occur at the flagship hospitals, the Geisinger Medical Center and Janet Weis Childrens Hospital.
Our faculty has undergone significant growth in the past couple of years with subspecialty staffing in oncology, pediatrics, pelvic floor, endourology and reconstruction. Our housestaff usually first assist the attending and interact daily in both the clinic and operating rooms. Our program is based on graded clinical and administrative responsibility culminating in the chief residency. Residents are able to tailor their experience to match the future professional goals, whether it be private practice or an academic career.
We have a 100% board passage rate and excellent success in matching our graduates into competitive fellowship programs. Residents graduate in the top 5% for operative logs per national averages.
I think you will be pleasantly surprised after you take a closer look at Geisinger. Feel free to contact either me or my residency coordinator, Kelly Beers, if questions arise.
