Chair's Message


Our four-year residency program in urology offers intensive clinical training with advanced academic orientation. The program gives residents an opportunity to:

  • become skilled clinicians
  • develop the background for an academic career, if they so choose

In either case, our goal is to train physicians who can provide leadership in a challenging specialty in an ever-changing practice environment. Our sub-specialized faculty are well recognized as experts in their field.

At Tulane Urology, new residents will have access to and receive advanced training at three major hospitals, including our own Tulane University Hospital and Clinic and two new, multi-billion dollar hospitals.  Visit our Facilities page for more information.

We at Tulane Urology are very involved in basic and clinical research. Our faculty has solid expertise in both basic urology and in all recognized areas of urologic sub-specialization. Thus, Tulane Urology residency offers an exceptionally complete preparation for the challenges of a lifetime of professional growth and success.

Approximately 25 percent of the applicants are invited for an interview, and no applicant is accepted without a personal interview. Our current RRC-ACGME full accreditation allows for two resident selections per year. We participate in the American Urological Association (AUA) Residency Matching Program. 

We look forward to hearing from you.

Raju Thomas, MD, FACS, FRCS, MHA
Professor and Chairman, Department of Urology
