In accordance with the policies and procedures set by the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, the Residency Training Program for the Brady Urological Institute is a formal ACGME-accredited, post-graduate medical education program.
The mission of The Johns Hopkins School of Medicine is tripartite: education, research and patient care. Similarly, the department of Urology holds these same three elements as the core of our mission.
- Education. Our residency program provides a graduated series of highly structured experiences, designed to train residents in a broad range of urologic practices.
- Research. The Brady Urological Institute was founded on the premise that a strong emphasis on basic research is fundamental to the advancement of our field. Our residents are offered multiple research opportunities throughout the residency. During the fourth year of urologic training, residents are given 12 months of protected research time. It is during this research time that most of our residents fully mature in their urologic training and identify specific areas of interest.
- Patient Care. Resident participation in patient care is fundamental to our program, with rotations in both inpatient and outpatient settings. Residency training is conducted in two separate hospitals, The Johns Hopkins Hospital and The Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center. Our residents also spend time working at our outpatient center, Green Spring Station.
Our program is specifically designed to produce fully trained academic urologists. Within the past 20 years, virtually all our resident graduates have assumed faculty positions in major academic centers and many of them have gone on to become chairs within their departments.
In our current era of increasing administrative, bureaucratic and fiscal demands, success in academia requires a strong sense of purpose, excellent mentoring with strong role models, and strong clinical skills. We believe that our program provides the optimal environment to facilitate such success.
