URO 45030 - Urology

Cr Hrs: 3, 6
Session Length: 2 and 4 weeks

This is a face to face clinical rotation receiving 3 or 6 credit hours. The student should function with increased autonomy in patient care and must demonstrate competency in several of the Entrustable Professional Activities required for graduation. This rotation will familiarize the student with basic urology exam, diagnosis and treatment of common urological problems i.e. voiding dysfunction, sexual dysfunction, incontinence, pediatric urological conditions, and stone disease. Students will be directly involved in the diagnosis of planning the evaluation of common urology problems noted above. The student will be trained in minor GU procedures like Foley placement and cystoscopy. The student will be supervised at all times by residents and/or faculty. The student is expected to participate in all urology conferences and prepare a formal presentation at end of rotation. The goal for the student is to be able to demonstrate efficient history taking skills, physical examination skills, formulate a differential diagnosis, order and interpret common ancillary studies, institute appropriate therapy, make rounds on assigned inpatients, demonstrate proficiency in procedural skills appropriate for the medical student level, under the direct supervision of an attending physician, observe/assist in procedures and provide patient care in an outpatient setting.
