During this rotation, Students have the opportunity to gain experience with many aspects of general urology, and will have the ability to watch and scrub cases in the subspecialties of urologic trauma/reconstruction, prosthetic urology, endourology, urologic oncology, infertility, and female/pelvic reconstruction. Main Line Health is a high-volume health system in the Western suburbs of Philadelphia with a large community based Urologic surgery experience. Students will spend most of their time at Lankenau Medical Center and Bryn Mawr Hospital as well as some time in clinical and private practice settings. Students are expected to attend weekly resident run didactic presentations, monthly M&M conference, monthly Journal club, and grand rounds when scheduled. There is robust exposure to a wide variety of urologic surgery during this rotation that will give the student a great perspective of urology as a specialty. When on service, students will not be expected to take call or work weekends.

The application period for our program begins in early February, but feel free to reach out to our coordinator with any questions and to indicate your interest any time before that.
