On behalf of the faculty of the Department of Urology of New York Medical College, we welcome you to the candidate evaluation process for our residency training program.
Residency is a unique educational opportunity. It is a time to gain the knowledge and expertise in medicine, surgery and research required to serve your future patients well. Residency is a time of personal and professional growth and of challenges. Our goal as faculty and mentors is to provide you with the support, guidance, and information required to make the most of your experience in a fulfilling, healthy, and enjoyable learning environment.
We have prepared a welcome booklet and website to supplement the information provided to you on site here in the evaluation process. You will find the booklet contains important information regarding the goals and objectives of each clinical and research rotation; the ways we prioritize your education over service; the methods to comply with work duty hour limits, departmental policies regarding lines of supervision, transfer of care methods, and on moonlighting; and our academic expectations. You will also find information related to personal and mental health, stress management, professional development, and hospital policies regarding work environment. As with any other issue which would influence or affect your understanding of the training program here at New York Medical College, you are encouraged to ask the faculty and the Program Director at any time for specific questions or concerns.
