Education is an integral part of the Lahey Hospital & Medical Center experience. There are at least 50 regularly scheduled conferences a month sponsored by both the medical and surgical divisions. Specifically in urology, the teaching format includes Journal Club, Morbidity and Mortality conference, GU tumor board, surgical Grand Rounds as well as Indications conference and Campbell’s club.
Excellent resources are available for the resident in the Richard B. Cattell Memorial Library, which has over 1,500 textbooks, 180 journal titles and 12,000 bound journal volumes. Additionally, all residents have access to Tufts University online resources which provides an extensive network of medical information. The urology resident office is equipped with multiple computer stations and residents have access to a variety of urologic teaching programs.
The residents also participate in the Surgical Simulation Center. This allows exposure to both laparoscopic as well as robotic technique. The institution shares common educational goals and our department continually strives to improve resident education.
In addition to the educational component of our residency program, we have a formal mentorship program in which all the residents participate. This allows for the residents to build a meaningful relationship with a faculty member/mentor for educational, academic, and psychosocial support.
Our training program meets all the requirements of the American Board of Urology (ABU) and is fully accredited by the American College for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME).
