As part of the Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine, the Department of Urology's mission is to enhance human health through excellence in medical education, biomedical research and clinical care.


We have a long tradition of providing the highest quality education in the assessment and management of urologic diseases. Indeed, our program is well-known for producing more department chairpersons than any other urology department in the United States.


In addition to training the best and the brightest students and physicians, we are forerunners in the development of scientific research and clinical advancements for urological disorders. Each year, our department consistently ranks in the top 25 urology departments for most research funding by the National Institutes of Health.

Patient Care
