Introduction to Urology is a preclinical elective designed to increase early exposure to clinical and surgical urology for junior medical students. The elective provides opportunities for students to participate in the operating room, on rounds, and in clinics, attend conferences, participate in a DaVinci Robotics workshop, work through clinical cases, and participate in seminars with residents and faculty. The elective is overseen by urology attendings and directed by urology residents, who establish one-on-one mentoring relationships with enrolled medical students. Students also have an opportunity to connect with research mentors.
