Urology residents are selected for our program through the American Urological Association Matching Program, consistently matching our top choices. The training program covers all aspects of urologic practice. Each first-year resident is paired with a faculty member who guides the resident through his or her UCSF training. This relationship is designed to facilitate our training program’s mission: to maintain a very competitive program which trains future leaders in urology, through the use of individualized clinical rotations and a year of focused laboratory research.

A passing score on USMLE Step II (CK and CS) is required for all trainees beginning a UCSF GME program. To meet this requirement, applicants should have passed USMLE Step II (CK and CS) prior to placement on UCSF rank order lists. In selected cases, with the approval of the Program Director and the Office of GME, applicants may be placed on UCSF rank order lists without the USMLE Step II (CK and CS) score. Selected cases may include applicants applying to UCSF residency programs with an early residency match.
