The Urology Care Foundation is focused on funding urologic research and research training in support of innovative treatments to improve the quality of patients’ lives. Since 1975, the Research Scholars Program has provided more than 525 scholarships and awards to young MD and PhD investigators who are interested in pursuing careers in urologic research. The Foundation also supports research opportunities for medical students and urology residents.
The Foundation believes that urologic research is critical in advancing patient care and supports initiatives that provide increased funding and support to the urology research community. At a time when many urology departments across the country are faced with budget challenges that limit quality research opportunities, these programs provide opportunities for young scientists to begin strong careers in urologic research excellence. Many past awardees remain active in academic urology today, continuing to build upon the foundation of experience and knowledge gained during their research fellowships.
