Developing Patient-Focused Leaders in Genitourinary Reconstruction & Trauma
The Genitourinary Reconstruction and Trauma Fellowship at Dell Medical School is a one-year program focused on providing trainees the skills to tackle the most complex genitourinary reconstruction surgeries. The clinical emphasis of the program is in male genitourinary reconstruction, including urethral stricture disease, Peyronie’s disease, robotic ureteral reconstruction and prosthetic urology.
The fellowship’s secondary focus includes genital reconstruction with skin grafting, urinary diversion, transitional urology, urinary fistula surgery and cancer survivorship. Fellows are exposed to urologic trauma and interact with trauma surgeons at a Level I Trauma Center. The fellowship does not provide trainees exposure to gender-affirming surgery and has limited access to female urology and female pelvic medicine and reconstructive surgery through supporting co-faculty.
The goal of the program is to create leaders in genitourinary reconstruction with strong clinical acumen and a focus on academic placement. Fellows will advance the field of genitourinary reconstruction and are expected to be clinically and academically productive with full access to genitourinary reconstruction datasets, weekly interactions with a research working group, participation in industry-sponsored teaching opportunities, and attendance to national and international meetings and workshops.
The Genitourinary and Reconstructive Surgery Fellowship is affiliated with the Department of Surgery and Perioperative Care.
