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
We currently have a 2 + 4 residency program. During 2 years of General Surgery, the resident will develop knowledge and experience in perioperative and critical care. Residents perform a large number of junior-level open and laparoscopic cases and begin our robotic training curriculum. Each year includes one month on the Urology service and residents are invited, when possible, to participate in Urology conferences and research.
During the PGY-3 (Uro-1) 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, basic general, female and reconstructive surgeries.
During the PGY-4 (Uro-2) year, the resident will spend three months on a clinical research rotation that includes an outpatient component at Lenox Hill. Previous residents have performed this research at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, and this research often results in AUA abstracts and peer-reviewed publications. Residents then complete a three-month oncology rotation at Memorial Sloan Kettering. Residents then return to Lenox Hill for the final six months of the year where they have increased autonomy on junior level cases.
The PGY-5 (Uro-3) resident is exposed to senior-level cases including complex reconstructive and minimally invasive surgery. During the final three months, the resident completes a Pediatric rotation at Westchester Medical Center.
The Chief Resident spends 12 months at Lenox Hill running the Urology service and covering all major urological cases. In addition, the resident assists in administrative duties and running our resident outpatient clinic. 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.
