Residency Program





Temple University Hospital

Temple University Hospital is the flagship institution in our Urology program.  The 721-bed hospital in the heart of North Philadelphia offers comprehensive inpatient and outpatient services to the surrounding community, and highly specialized tertiary services to the entire region.  Residents have exposure to both a private and resident run clinic, allowing for full exposure to all aspects of Urologic care.  The hospital features a fully dedicated cystoscopy suite and is a tertiary care referral center.




Abington Memorial Hospital

Abington exposes our residents to the "bread and butter" cases represented in a busy private practice.  In addition to a high operative volume, the chief resident runs a weekly half-day clinic for the underinsured.  Among the 11 staff urologists at Abington, two have fellowship training in female urology, two in infertility, one in minimally invasive surgery, and one in oncology.  There is a dedicated DaVinci robotic system utilized for urologic cases 2 days per week.




Fox Chase Cancer Center


Fox Chase Cancer Center is the region's only hospital devoted entirely to cancer treatment, research and prevention. The 100-bed hospital, located in Philadelphia, is among the top cancer centers in the nation.  Fox Chase Cancer Center is an independent, nonprofit institution formed in 1974 by the union of American Oncologic Hospital (one the the nation's first cancer hospitals, established in 1904) and the Institute for Cancer Research (founded in 1927). Fox Chase was also among the first institutions to be designated a National Cancer Institute Comprehensive Cancer Center in 1974.  The Urology resident experiences the full breadth of oncology in this referral center.  Working within a mentorship-model under five urologic oncologists, residents follow patients from workup, through the operation and hospital admission, to outpatient follow-up. 





St. Christopher's Hospital for Children

St. Christopher's Hospital for Children has been a leading pediatric hospital since 1875.  All aspects of pediatric care are fully represented, including pediatric urology.  Residents are exposed to the full spectrum of pediatric urology as they work with four pediatric urologists.
