OUR EDUCATIONAL PHILOSOPHY

The McLaren Macomb Urology Residency Program is committed to the highest caliber program, preparing residents for a career in either academic medicine or the private practice of urology. Clinical proficiency, integrity, and sensitivity to patient satisfaction are paramount. Optimal training of an urologist is dependent upon motivated and talented residents, committed faculty with necessary expertise, and an institutional environment conducive to learning. To learn the craft of urology, residents must receive graded and increasing responsibility in patient care by level of training, organized didactic education, receive evaluation of performance, instruction to develop skills of life-long learning, and exposure to basic principles of medical research and its application to clinical disease. Residents must develop competence in patient care, medical knowledge, practice-based learning and improvement, interpersonal skills and communication, professionalism, and systems-based practice.
