Advanced Urology Fellowship

As a member of the department of urology at the University of Florida College of Medicine – Jacksonville, our curriculum is focused on the advanced development of urologists with special attention dedicated to advanced urology, endourology and reconstructive urology.

Our curriculum is based upon a minimum of one year with the fellowship, with the opportunity to extend to a maximum of three years. The first year will focus on advanced urology, including urological oncology, endourology and reconstructive urology. The second and third years of training will be tailored to the fellows’ interest, allowing for further sub specialization into one of the aforementioned focus areas.

Goals and Objectives

The overarching goal of the fellowship program is to allow urologists to develop the knowledge base, clinical and surgical skills to practice advanced urology in the areas of urological oncology, including advanced robotic, open and laparoscopic surgery, endoscopic and reconstructive urological surgery. This goal will be accomplished using the six competencies established by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education, or ACGME: patient care, medical knowledge, practice-based learning and improvements, professionalism and system-based practice.


Active participation in research is highly encouraged. Fellows have the opportunity to participate in ongoing research projects while encouraged to initiate their own scholarly ideas. In-depth guidance and counseling are provided by faculty well-versed in the area of research. Training spans the spectrum from constructing study protocols, to enrolling patients, to gathering and analyzing data, to writing abstracts and manuscripts.

The University of Florida College of Medicine – Jacksonville encourages resident/fellow research through the availability of Dean’s Fund Research Awards and an annual Research Day, with residents and fellows from all disciplines presenting their work. Well-designed studies conducted in collaboration with the faculty have resulted in residents and fellows presenting their research at regional, national and international meetings.
