The primary objective of the Urology Residency Training Program is to ensure that the trainee is competent in all aspects of the care of patients with Urological Disease. The specific objectives will align with the Royal College Objectives of Training in Urology and Specialty Training Requirements in Urology. They are very detailed and will be of use to assess preparedness for the Royal College exams. They can also be used by the resident to evaluate the quality and comprehensiveness of the training program. Specific objectives are available on a rotation-by-rotation basis. The resident should become familiar with the objectives early in the first year of training and seek learning experiences (textbooks, journal articles, computer-assisted simulations, and demonstrations) and actual or simulated patient cases, appropriate for the attainment of each objective. The rotation-specific objectives of the three years of Urological training will provide more guidance as to self-assessment of progress through the training program.
