About the Programs

The Department of Urology non-accredited fellowships are designed to provide intense training in a specialized area of urology to highly qualified graduates of accredited urology residency training programs. Fellowships are tailored to an individual’s interests, whether clinical or research, and are available for one or two years. Fellowships will prepare a graduate for specialized practice within a community or academic environment.

The Department of Urology places primary emphasis on the residency training program; thus, clinical fellows are educational resources to the residents and assist them in clinic and during surgery. Residents interested in applying for one of our non-accredited fellowship training programs must be eligible for a permanent Iowa medical license. Please visit the Iowa Board of Medicine website for licensure eligibility criteria. Candidates will also be responsible for obtaining an appropriate visa.
