Urology Fellowships & Training

Lurie Children’s Division of Urology fellowship program through Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine provides a comprehensive training experience for board-certified physicians seeking subspecialty certification in pediatric urology. The fellowship is two years long. Each year is dedicated to a specific area of training. Both years include dedicated time with faculty to develop the fellow's skills in each area.

The first year is dedicated to academic productivity, via basic science and/or research efforts, in order to lay the groundwork for a career in academic pediatric urology. Fellows may choose between a traditional, basic science effort and a dedicated, clinical research project based on their individual goals or interests.

The second year provides a broad-ranging clinical experience with volumes that ensure practice in a wide breadth of cases and conditions. The clinical year also presents fellows the opportunity to develop leadership skills through management of the service and supervision of team rounds.

Throughout both years, fellows interact and collaborate with our faculty to develop their academic, clinical and professional skills, and to achieve their individual career goals. For candidates without a specific focus, our faculty provides mentorship and offers career development counseling.

Our program offers flexibility to meet the individual goals of our fellows. We work with candidates to incorporate their specific goals into the overall program requirements in order to provide an individualized, yet comprehensive, fellowship experience.

Our fellowship is fully accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) and is administered through our academic partner, the Feinberg School. We participate in the National Fellowship Match through the Society for Pediatric Urology.

We also periodically hold physician training workshops to review the latest techniques for treating children with enuresis. Learn more about physician training.
