Residency in Urology at Lenox Hill Hospital
A message from the program director
Thank you for your interest in our program. Residency training is a vital component to our department, and resident input has been directly responsible for strengthening our didactics program, diverse clinical experiences and research program. We currently accept one resident per year through the Urology Match. With one resident per year, we believe we can provide each resident a personalized approach to education and training. We are looking for motivated, hard-working individuals from diverse backgrounds and experiences.
Michael Feuerstein, MD
Residency Program Director
Incoming residents will be accepted into a 5-year Urology residency which includes 6 months of General Surgery at Lenox Hill Hospital. During all Urology rotations, residents rotate on inpatient and outpatient services and attend weekly Grand Rounds, AUA Core Curriculum conferences and a weekly didactic lecture at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center.
During the PGY-1 year, residents rotate in General Surgery with exposure to minimally-invasive surgery, colorectal surgery, acute care surgery and critical care. In the second half of the year, residents will rotate on the Urology service at Lenox Hill Hospital with an emphasis on pre- and post-operative management, inpatient consultations and basic endoscopic, laparoscopic and open surgical techniques.
During the PGY-2 year, the resident will spend 12 months on the Urology service at Lenox Hill Hospital. The resident will gain an extensive training in endoscopic surgery, office-based procedures, female urology and reconstructive surgery.
During the PGY-3 year, the resident will spend three months on a clinical research rotation that includes an outpatient component at Lenox Hill. Multiple opportunities and sites for research are available including research at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. Residents then complete a three-month oncology rotation at Memorial Sloan Kettering. Residents then return to Lenox Hill for the three months when they have increased autonomy on junior level cases. During the final three months, residents rotate in Pediatric urology as a senior level resident.
The PGY-4 resident is exposed to senior-level cases at Lenox Hill including complex reconstructive, oncological and minimally invasive surgery.
The Chief Resident spends 12 months at Lenox Hill running the Urology service and covering all major urological cases. Our Chief Residents have graduated to both prestigious fellowship programs and private practices.
We participate in the Urology Match through ERAS. For details regarding application deadlines, please refer to the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS) website.
