These educational goals and objectives are provided to Urology residents to inform them of their responsibilities and to help them monitor the level of expertise they are expected to achieve for each rotation.
The residents will be evaluated subjectively on their clinical performance by their attendings and objectively by their performance on the In-Service. If the resident's performance is poor, he/she may be placed on remediation as per the guidelines in the University of Colorado Denver School of Medicine Housestaff Manual. If the resident scores less than the 25th percentile on the In-Service Examination, he/she will automatically be placed on remediation, until the score exceeds the 25th percentile on a subsequent examination.
In addition to the Clinical Training Program, the resident is expected to participate in scholarly activities. The resident is encouraged to publish, as first author, a minimum of three articles in peer-reviewed journals during their training and present scholarly work at regional and national urologic meetings.
The educational goals are outlined for each rotation/year of training. Educational goals or the UCDenver and VA rotations are combined for both the PGY-3 and PGY-6 years. Click below for more information on each PGY year.
