Urology Residency Program

A Letter from the Director 

Welcome! Thank you for taking the time to learn more about The Johns Hopkins University’s Urology Residency Program. The Brady Urological Institute opened in 1915 and was the first urology residency in the country. Since its inception, the program has trained exceptional clinical and academic urologists, many of whom currently serve as chairs or professors at premier urology programs throughout the United States and beyond.  

Although our program has a long legacy with a rich tradition of excellence, the Brady remains at the forefront of urologic innovation. Our department continues to push the boundaries of clinical, surgical, and scientific urology. Known worldwide for our many advances in urologic oncology, our Department offers the full experience of training with faculty who are experts in their respective fields, including endourology, male reconstruction, female pelvic medicine, voiding dysfunction, infertility, sexual health and pediatric urology. Our surgical experience is cutting-edge and utilizes the most state-of-the-art urological technology and techniques, allowing our residents to be facile endoscopists, laparoscopists, open surgeons and roboticists.  

One of the truly exciting aspects of our urology residency program is our unaccredited research year that allows our residents to develop their academic portfolio and further their professional development. During this unaccredited year, our residents pursue research in their areas of interest with consistent mentorship from our experienced academic faculty. Our research opportunities are limitless, extending from the basic science and translational to clinical, educational and policy initiatives. 

Reflective of the innovation inherent in our Department, our educational curriculum continues to evolve to meet the needs of our future urology leaders. From advanced laparoscopy and robotic simulation to elucidation of the “hidden curriculum,” our program provides resident learners with the tools to become the future of academic urology. In order to cultivate this successful learning atmosphere, our department strives to ensure a diverse and inclusive learning environment with a focus on resident and faculty wellness. 

In accordance with the recommendations of the American Urological Association and the Society of Academic Urologists, we are currently not offering in-person sub-internships due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We do, however, encourage you to join our virtual Open House experiences that will be available throughout the fall. Additionally, feel free to contact myself or our residency leadership team if you have questions regarding the amazing training program we have at the Brady. 

We, as the Brady faculty, are excited and proud to help train the next generation of leaders in urology. We invite passionate, collaborative and innovative applicants to apply to be a part of the Brady legacy.
