Research is an important part of the training experience. As we train future leaders in Urology, our residents need the tools to compete for top-tier fellowship positions.
Specialty training is critical for academic success and to attain desired positions in prominent large urology group practices and leading health systems around the country.
At The Ohio State University, we expect all residents to engage in research activities. Consequently, we provide our trainees with didactics in research through our Resident Research Curriculum. This interactive series includes monthly sessions with research experts devoting time to important topics including regulatory processes, hypothesis generation, data collection and analyses, and manuscript development. Residents have protected time each month to attend these sessions.
Urology Resident Preceptorship in Robotic Surgery
This two-day program is designed for urology chief residents and fellows who are interested in learning about robotic surgery for kidney, bladder, adrenal and reconstructive urologic procedures. The program includes live surgical procedures and open discussions about the strengths and limitations of robotic techniques.
Men's Health Cadaver Lab
The OSU Men's Health Prosthetic Cadaver Lab offers training experience with cadavers.
There is a monthly simulation class, organized by a different attending every month.
A monthly research curriculum has been added to teach the residents the basics of how to bring an idea to a published paper. Under the guidance of Dr. Tatevik Broutian and Justin Rose, the residents learn to write a protocol, obtain IRB approval, collect data, statistically analyze that data and submit the written manuscript for publication. The goal is to get 5 first author papers published during their training.
