Urology Care Foundation Residency Research Award
Conducting urologic research is an exciting and vital activity for medical professionals. Research training during urology residency provides residents with exposure to this potential career path and experience to enable them to continue their development towards becoming independent investigators. Importantly, residency research training has the potential to address the critical and increasing shortfall of urology surgeon-scientists and to play a key role in departmental and institutional contributions to science and to improving patients’ lives through research.
The Urology Care Foundation is proud to provide the Residency Research Award Program. This program, initiated in 2010 and having funded ten awards thus far, is made possible through the support of the Urology Care Foundation, the Russell Scott, Jr., MD Urology Research Fund, and other sponsors. The awards provide funding to conduct either six months or one year of research under the direction of an accomplished mentor. Awardees receive $40,000 for a one-year award or $20,000 for a six-month award. Sponsoring institutions provide matching funds to ensure that the awardee receives adequate research support.
The competition for the 2016 Residency Research Award Program is now closed. Please check back in Fall 2017 for details regarding next year’s competition.
