PGY-1: Pre-Urology / General Surgery

The PGY-1 year is split between general surgery and urology. Each PGY-1 spends 6 months on urology and 6 months on general surgery services at RWJUH.

This year provides a well-rounded preliminary experience with exposure to surgical oncology, trauma, emergency general surgery, and the surgical intensive care unit. The 6 months of urology prepares each individual well for the start of Urology 1 year.

Residents spend the full year at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital, and rotate three months at a time on urology or various general surgery services.
