The Urology Residency Program at McMaster is a fully accredited five year program. This comprehensive educational program ensures that all residents are aware of recent developments in urology.
In conjunction with CMAS (Centre for Minimal Access Surgery), the Division of Urology has one of the most active laparoscopic urology programs in Canada. The McMaster Urologists have performed over 1000 laparoscopic urological procedures since its inception, including over 600 laparoscopic nephrectomies for malignancy. We have been on the forefront of advanced renal laparoscopic procedures including pyeloplasty, partial nephrectomy, and polycystic nephrectomy.
We are also on the forefront of laparoscopic prostate surgery, having performed more than 500 laparoscopic radical prostatectomies for prostate cancer. We are the busiest prostate cancer centre in Canada, performing 4-6 laparoscopic radical prostatectomy per week.
So welcome to the Urology residency program. This manual will provide you with a valuable orientation to the program.
