WELCOME TO THE DEPARTMENT OF UROLOGY
The Department of Urology strives to develop innovative ways to advance the diagnosis and treatment of urologic diseases and educate the next generation of leaders in the field. We are leading the way by addressing every aspect of our mission: patient care; education; discovery and innovation; public health; and teaching.
What sets UI Urology apart, and will continue to do so as we continue at a rapid pace along all these aspects of our mission, is our interest in envisioning the future. And we have well defined, tangible ways of getting there. That’s driving so much of what we’re doing and builds on a fabulous culture that attracts so many to want to be a part of our department.
If you are a medical student, please visit our Education and Residency pages to learn more about our program.
Visiting Students – UIC will follow the recommendations of the Association of American Medical Colleges concerning the hosting of US and international students. Further updates will be posted on the College of Medicine Visiting Student page.

In the newsletter, we also welcome our new residents and fellows, and the graduating residents take a look back at their years with UIC.
