PGY 4 - Urology 3
The PGY 4 residents spend 12 months as "Chief" Resident at Princeton and Somerset.
The Princeton Medical Center 6 month rotation, provides the resident exposure to a high volume private practice experience as 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 Robert Wood Johnson University Barnabas University Hospital 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.
