PGY-4: Urology 3

The PGY 4 residents spend 12 months as "Chief" Resident at Princeton and Somerset.

The Princeton¬†6 month rotation, provides the resident exposure to a high volume private practice experience as a Chief Resident. The resident participates in the outpatient and inpatient management of all patients with a concentration on medical and surgical management of BPH, urinary tract calculi, and benign and malignant neoplasms of the genitourinary tract. 

The PGY-4 also spends 6 months as "Chief" at RWJUH-Somerset. This rotation is heavily weighted towards minimally invasive and robotic surgery and allows the resident to gain confidence through independent learning and skills development. The Somerset operative experience includes a large volume of laparoscopic and robotic cases under the supervision of our fellowship trained robotic clinical faculty. As chief, the resident is responsible for teaching and guiding the PGY-2 through surgical cases and inpatient consultations.

PGY-4 year prepares the resident for his or her duties as Chief Resident.
