Welcome to campus

Visit Case Western Reserve University's uniquely urban campus, located in the heart of Cleveland's cultural hub, University Circle. Plan your trip:


At Case Western Reserve University's Department of Urology, we offer students, residents, fellows and other health care professionals the chance to learn from and be mentored by dedicated, skilled faculty and innovative researchers. Our commitment to providing the best urological education and to performing groundbreaking research is the reason why we have such a long, rich history of training leaders in the field of academic urology.

Research Training and Career Development Programs

The Department of Urology is dedicated to training the next generation of urologic researchers and surgeon scientists. As such, we are one of only a few universities to be home to both a T32 Institutional National Research Service Award and an Institutional K12 Urologic Research (KURe) Career Development Program from the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK). The CWRU Urology Translational Research Training (CUTRT) Program (T32) provides training to PhD-, MD, and MD, PhD-level postdoctoral fellows. The Case Incubator and Multidisciplinary Urologic Research Group (CIMURG) to support PhD-, MD, and MD, PhD-level Scholars on their path to independence (K12). Both programs emphasize the multidisciplinary nature of urologic research, and focus on development and expansion of collaborative research groups with a common research focus (such as: urological complications of obesity and diabetes, women's lower urinary tract dysfunction, and benign prostatic lower urinary tract dysfunction)


Urology Residency and Fellowships

Our Department offers a six-year, residency program, which includes one non-accredited year of research—one of only a few urology training programs in the country to provide a full year of dedicated research.

In addition to our residency program, we boast a fellowship in female pelvic medicine and reconstructive surgery.


Our Teaching Affiliates

As a trainee, you will learn the clinical practice of urology while being exposed to a wide range of patient populations and hospital settings, including University Hospitals Cleveland Medical Center—our primary hospital affiliate and home to the newly established UH Urology Institute and top pediatric hospital UH Rainbow Babies & Children's Hospital. Other teaching affiliates include MetroHealth Medical Center, Louis Stokes Cleveland VA Medical Center and Cleveland Clinic.


Other Educational Activities

Besides our residency and fellowship training programs, we teach a number of urology-related courses for medical students and residents at CWRU and other institutions, as well as provide Continuing Medical Education (CME) opportunities for health care professionals in the region.
