Clinical Experience

The successful trainee is expected complete between 1,500 to 2,000 index cases as measured by the American Board of Urology (ABU) over the 4 year program. The previous 5 years of trainees achieved the 1st percentile for pediatric urology cases and at least the 10th percentile in endourology and adult oncology. The average case mix index of the 5 hospitals participating in the program during CMS year 2011 was 1.65 +/- 0.57 (range 1.15-2.36) compared to a national average of 1.45 +/- 0.34 (range 0.58-3.76). Based on the mean 2010-2013 data, the resident’s patient panel in the supervised resident clinic is expected to include 252.2 +/- 22.6 patient encounters per year.
