The outpatient department of each of the participating institutions is utilized for resident education. The resident objectives for participation in all of the outpatient clinics are to learn the methods for evaluation of new urologic patients, to develop diagnostic and treatment plans for both inpatient and outpatient urologic problems, and to learn continuity of care through follow-up of both inpatients and outpatients. The organization and operation of the clinics at the University hospital will be described in detail and a brief description of the other sites will follow to denote any differences.
UI Hospital & Cancer Center Clinic
The University of Illinois Outpatient Clinical Care Center and Urology Cancer Clinic are located across Wood Street from the University hospital. The residents see patients under direct supervision of both the chief resident and attending physician. With six-month rotations, residents have the opportunity to follow clinic patients to the hospital or outpatient surgical setting and to follow-up care in the clinic. The clinic has facilities for the residents to be trained in routine procedures such as flexible cystoscopy, trans-rectal ultrasonography and prostate needle biopsy.
