Emory University School of Medicine, in collaboration with Children's Healthcare of Atlanta, offers a two-year fellowship program in pediatric urology. The program features a year of comprehensive clinical experience in pediatric urology followed by a basic science research year.
The first (clinical) year is conducted under the supervision of seven pediatric urology attendings at two campuses of Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, which combined has nearly 500 pediatric beds. Competency is developed in all major areas of pediatric urology practice including, endourology, fluid and electrolyte management, genitourinary reconstructive surgery, intersex, neurogenic bladder dysfunction, obstructive uropathy, oncology, perinatal urology, trauma, urinary tract infection, urolithiasis and voiding dysfunction. An interdisciplinary approach is employed particularly in the care of oncology patients and patients with neurogenic bladder dysfunction.
The second (research) year is conducted under the mentorship of Leland Chung, Ph.D., Professor and Director, Molecular Urology and Therapeutics Program at Emory, and involves molecular genetic approaches to investigation of developmental processes.
Successful completion of an accredited residency in general urology is expected prior to entering the fellowship program. Applicants are usually interviewed during PGY-4 (senior resident year) of their urology residency and commitments are made through the AUA supported match.
