The Pediatric Urology Fellowship at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine Department of Urology consists of one year of clinical pediatric urology training and one year of clinical/basic science. The program is an accredited fellowship by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education.
The trainee will spend his or her research years conducting ongoing research and will be encouraged to develop his/her own field of interest. The clinical program is centered at Johns Hopkins Children's Center, the pediatric hospital at Johns Hopkins that serves a diverse patient population and receives a wide range of pediatric urology cases.
The clinical rotation involves rotations in outpatient clinic, complex reconstructions/ambulatory surgery, urodynamics, exposure to spina bifida and stone clinic, fetal treatment and pediatric oncology (tumor board).
Johns Hopkins faculty involved in the training of the pediatric urology fellow includes pediatric endocrinologists, nephrologists, neonatologists, oncologists, neurosurgeons, infectious disease specialists, geneticists, radiologists and pediatric surgeons. See a complete list of our faculty by specialty.
The pediatric urology fellow is expected to attend and participate in weekly educational conferences, didactic teaching sessions, daily management of inpatients with the urology residents and consulting services.
Eligible applicants are completing a urology residency program and are preferably candidates for the American Board of Urology. We participate in the matching program by the American Urologic Association AUA and the Society for Pediatric Urology. Applications are due in winter or early spring.
