Productivity is rewarded with attendance at regional and national meetings. A number of residents attend and present at the South Central AUA and national AUA meeting annually. Residents are also been able to attend other national meetings such as SUFU and SUO if their projects are accepted. Finally, we encourage active involvement in the Society for Women in Urology and support a large contingency at this important conference annually.
Our program endorses a collaborative approach to research, with faculty, senior, and junior residents working together to ask and answer important questions. Given Baylor’s unique position in the largest medical center in the world, residents have also collaborated with faculty at Houston Methodist Hospital and MD Anderson.
In summary, our program aims to equip each of our trainees with the visibility to place them in their fellowship of choice, with the foundation necessary for a career in academic urology, and the skills required of all urologists to practice lifelong learning.
