The adult urology rotation at RWJUH includes heavy focus on diagnosis, preoperative evaluation, care, and medical/surgical management of a wide breadth of urologic conditions. Operative experience mostly includes cystoscopic and ureteroscopic cases, prostate biopsy, and other minor surgical procedures involving inguinal or scrotal region.

At Somerset, a PGY-2 and PGY-4 are paired to run a service encompassing 7 private urologists. Good exposure is provided with both simple and complex urologic procedures including robotic surgery.
