During this rotation, students are exposed to the many aspects of general urologic surgery, including the subspecialties of urologic trauma/reconstruction, prosthetic urology, endourology, oncology, and female/pelvic reconstruction. Einstein Medical Center Philadelphia is a Level 1 Trauma Center and the Einstein Medical Center Montgomery campus is a large community based Urology experience with ample exposure to general and subspecialty urology. Students will also spend time at Fox Chase Cancer Center, a major site for much of the oncology training in our program. Students will not be required to take call during this rotation. Students will also participate in the active clinic setting with one-on-one participation with the core faculty. Students are expected to attend weekly Grand Rounds, monthly M&M conference, monthly Journal clubs and weekly resident didactic sessions. There is robust exposure to a wide variety of urologic surgery during this rotation. All evaluations are also given by a member of the residency core faculty and are supervised by the Clerkship Director. Evaluations are based on the student’s attitude, motivation, knowledge and skills (H&P, factual knowledge, independent reading done by the student, patient care, and OR performance-manual dexterity). Students are nominated for Excellent or Honors on the basis of outstanding fund of knowledge, extensive participation in daily activities and patient care, and the highest level of interaction with the residents and attending physicians.
