The sub-internship program at Lahey Hospital and Medical Center is designed to give medical students who are interested in matching in urology exposure to our program. We welcome medical students from all institutions. The rotation provides a rich educational exposure to both general and subspecialty urology. The sub-interns function as members of the surgical team.

Sub-interns spend four weeks at Lahey Hospital and Medical Center. Students will rotate through all urologic services gaining experience in all aspects of urology, including Oncology, MIS (minimally-invasive surgery), Endourology, Urethral reconstruction, Incontinence and Andrology in both in the outpatient clinic as well as the operating room. Sub-interns are expected to give a presentation in an area of urology of their choice near the end of their rotation. There is no overnight call, however the students may stay late to help manage patients or participate in the sign-out process.

Due to high demand, the sub-internship application for visiting students is a competitive process. Applications should be submitted to the Visiting Student Program at Tufts University School of Medicine and must include:

  • Application form
  • Curriculum vitea
  • Immunization records
  • Medical school transcripts
  • Cover letter describing interest in our program

The Residency Program Director (Dr. Karim Hamawy) will review all applications and make final decisions regarding acceptance to the program. Preference dates for a urology sub-internship are not guaranteed. Questions regarding the sub-internship can be directed to the Program Coordinator, Joanne Messina (781-744-7409) or [email protected].
