VA and Mason City

In addition to rotations at University of Iowa Hospitals & Clinics and UI Stead Family Children’s Hospital, our residents rotate to two other locations in their fourth and fifth years.

Iowa City Veterans Affairs Medical Center

Located adjacent to the UI Hospital & Clinics campus, the Iowa City VA Medical Center serves patients in its urology clinic three days per week and OR cases the other two days. Residents appreciate the autonomy at the VA Medical Center, with PGY 4 residents serving as junior residents and PGY 5 residents as chiefs.

The rotation in Mason City in northern Iowa gives PGY 5 residents an opportunity to participate in a private practice setting with four staff urologists. Residents gain experience in all aspects of urologic surgery, including ESWL and transurethral procedures, and open and laparoscopic cases.
