The Ochsner Clinic Foundation offers a fully-accredited four year urology residency training program.
Two residents are accepted each year through participation in the American Urological Association (AUA) Resident Matching Program. Applicants are required to be graduates of an accredited Medical School, and complete one year of pre-requisite general surgical training prior to beginning their Urology Residency. It is expected that all Ochsner urology resident applicants complete their general surgical training through the General Surgery Departments of the Ochsner Clinic Foundation. After completion of this preliminary year, the physician entering urology training has a good foundation in the fundamentals of surgical techniques and medical diseases of the kidney which enable him or her to properly advance during the remainder of the four years of urology residency.
