The Pediatric Urology Fellowship Program at Vanderbilt is accredited by the ACGME. We accept one fellow every year into our program. Fellows must have completed an accredited urology residency in the United States or Canada. The program consists of two years of training-one year of research and one year of clinical training.
The first year is spent in Pediatric Urology research under the direction of Dr. John Pope in basic science. During the fellowship, the fellow is expected to pursue multiple basic science and clinical research projects. During the second year, the fellow is on the clinical service. We have an extremely large clinical volume which will provide the fellow with exceptional training experience.
There are separate multidisciplinary didactic conferences, research conferences, radiology conferences, morbidity and mortality conferences, and clinical case conferences.
It is our goal that upon completion of our program, our fellows will move into academic appointments in pediatric urology.
We participate in the SPU Fellowship Matching Program. Prior to applying, interested parties should register via the internet at www.spuonline.org, select Fellowships then follow other given instructions in order to receive your registration number. You will find a universal pediatric urology fellowship application on this site as well.
