Physician Scientist Residency Training Award

The Physician Scientist Residency Training Award is the newest addition to the Urology Care Foundation’s mentored grants portfolio and was made possible thanks to an endowed partnership with Dornier MedTech. A program relatively rare in the field of urology but common in other medical and surgical fields, this award supports a three-year research training program embedded within urology residency. The focus of this program is to prepare young surgeon scientists to become successful research leaders and make impactful discoveries for their patients.

The Physician Scientist Residency Training Award was launched in 2017 after 18 months of consulting research leaders within and outside of urology and gathering information from numerous residency programs, as well as guidance and approval from the AUA Board of Directors and the American Board of Urology. The award is first competed to academic institutions to determine which urology residency programs can provide the necessary training and support for this new program. The second phase of the competition is then opened to medical students to apply for an available residency slot at one of these institutions.

We are currently unable to accept applications from institutions or trainees at this time. Please contact with any questions.
