Residents are selected for our program through the American Urological Association Matching Program. The actual match takes place 2-1/2 years before commencement of our training program, thereby providing the individual with the two-year period in which to complete a required two-year general surgery training program at the University of California San Francisco. Full details and instructions regarding the AUA Matching Program are available by contacting Joannie O'Leary (415/885-7748, olearyj@urology.ucsf.edu)

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.
