The Geisinger Urology Residency Program provides residents with the highest quality educational experience to facilitate their development into exemplary surgeons, clinicians and leaders in the practice of urology. Geisinger is nationally recognized for its innovative approach to integrated healthcare delivery.
The residency program currently accepts two residents per year to our five-year program. Resident education remains the focus of our department and faculty, with the goal of training compassionate surgeons who are prepared to deliver urologic care in a continuously evolving healthcare environment. Our faculty includes a diverse group with fellowship training in oncology, minimally invasive surgery, endourology, genitourinary reconstruction and pediatrics. The smaller size of our program allows for individualized mentoring in the clinic and operating room. The program is based on graded clinical and administrative responsibilities, culminating in the chief year. Residents tailor their experiences to match their future professional goals, whether it be private practice or an academic career.
The primary clinical experience is based at Geisinger Medical Center in Danville, Pa., with senior resident rotations in Wilkes-Barre and Scranton. With a service area of more than 500,000 patients throughout central and northeastern Pennsylvania, there is an incredible diversity of cases and pathology. Because of this, our residents graduate above the 90th percentile for transurethral, endourological, male reconstructive, retroperitoneal, major pediatrics and laparoscopic procedures. We have a 100% board passage rate and excellent success matching our graduates into competitive fellowship programs.
Above all, our residents and faculty share a deep commitment to quality patient care in the community we serve.
I sincerely appreciate your interest in our program and would love to share more. Feel free to contact me or our residency administrator Mallory Swartz with any questions.
