The Department of Urologic Surgery has developed a national reputation for innovative patient care, outstanding fellowship and residency training, and both basic and clinical research. We have one of the largest clinical faculties of any academic center in the country and national leaders in virtually every domain of urologic surgery. Both our adult and pediatric urology divisions are ranked among the top 10 programs in the country, one of only a few departments nationally with this distinction. Vanderbilt is one of the highest volume hospitals in the country for Urologic surgical procedures. We have a comprehensive approach to patient care which incorporates innovative diagnostic, treatment, and research capabilities. Trainees in our residency and fellowship programs are selected from the top institutions world wide and are expected to become leaders in the field of Urologic Surgery.
