2019 RESIDENCY MATCH

Tulane Urology participates in the Residency Match program.

The 2019 residency application process will open in September of 2018.   Tulane Urology's two interview days will be on Saturday October 27, 2018 and Saturday November 3, 2018. Tulane accepts applications through the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS). Please register with ERAS to apply. For further information contact Ms. Demi Robert via e-mail at drobert@tulane.edu or by phone (504) 988-2794.
 

REQUIREMENTS

Resident applicants are chosen based upon criteria established by the American Board of Urology.

Tulane Urology Residency Program requires that the student graduate from an accredited Medical School, followed by completion of one year of general surgical training. It is expected of all resident applicants that the general surgical training be completed through the General Surgery Department at Tulane University. Prior research experience and requirements can be accommodated as per American Board of Urology guidelines.

One year of general surgery rotation in the Department of Surgery at Tulane is an expectation, followed by four years in the Department of Urology.

INTERVIEW PROCESS

The interview process is designed so that there is a one-on-one interaction, in most instances, with each faculty member. This interview process provides a subjective and objective evaluation of the applicant. Also, the applicant is given every opportunity to investigate the status of the department.

During the course of the interview process, the applicants meet separately with the present complement of urology residents and get a detailed tour of the Urology Department and our physical facilities (hospitals, clinics, specialty urology areas, etc.). The Chief Residents play an active role in the interview process and provides useful feedback.

Well over 200 completed applications are received each year. Of those, approximately 25 resident applicants are interviewed annually.

At the end of each interview day, the faculty meets and scores these resident applicants in writing on a standardized evaluation form. These applicants are then placed on a numerical ranking list.

In the month of December, once all the resident interviews have been completed,  our rank list is sent to the American Urological Association for Match Day. Special consideration is given to resident applicants who have shown evidence of interest in urology in the form of research, electives, paper presentations or publications, AOA status, etc. These candidates are ranked and the list submitted for the residency match in January.
