Residency Program Overview

The University of Toronto Urology Residency Training program is a fully comprehensive, immersive training program with clinical and research exposure to all subspecialty areas within the field of urology. Trainees have the opportunity to work along side internationally recognized faculty members within each subspecialty area.

The training program spans approximately 5 clinical years and trainees interested in an academic career have opportunities to step out of the clinical stream to enrol in the University of Toronto Dept of Surgery Surgical Scientist Training Program (SSTP).

The program is currently transitioning towards a fully competency-based medical education curriculum, in line with the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons “Competency By Design (CBD)” mandate. Trainees will also be enrolled in the Surgical Foundations program during the first clinical year of training, as mandated by the Royal College. Clinical rotations during the training program include exposure to all subspecialty areas within urology, as well as off-service rotations in general
