Residency_inscrubs

A residency in the Department of Urology at The Ohio State University is a challenging and rewarding experience that entails a complex interaction of learning through patient care. It requires maintenance of a balance between the educational and clinical responsibilities, as well as dedication to learning and personal excellence. Dr. Cheryl T. Lee is the chair of the Department of Urology and Dr. David Sharp is the residency director. Three internships are offered each year.

Urology residents are selected by a competitive process and are chosen through the match program administered by the American Urological Association’s (AUA) Office of Education. All applications are internally reviewed by at least two faculty members to selectively invite candidates for the interview process. At the conclusion of the interview process, faculty members and residents meet to discuss the strengths and weaknesses of each candidate, and the rank order is submitted to the AUA office of Education. All candidates must be registered with the AUA Residency Match.
