New Endourology Fellowship

Dr. Chad Tracy is happy to announce that the University of Iowa Department of Urology now offers a one-year Fellowship (Certificate in Advanced Clinical Training) in minimally invasive laparoscopic, robotics, and endourology.

The University of Iowa is a tertiary referral center for the Midwest allowing us to see a high volume of cancer, reconstructive urology, and complex stone disease. The fellow will have exposure to cutting edge technology for detection and management of prostate and kidney cancer including novel PET agent, MR-targeted biopsy, and percutaneous ablation of kidney cancer. Stone management will include percutaneous access to the kidney for nephrostolithotomy, ureteroscopy, SWL, and metabolic evaluation and management. Fellows will be junior faculty members (Clinical Instructor in Urology) and will participate in weekly conferences, including multidisciplinary tumor board and MRI rounds.  

Fellows are active participants in departmental research, with an opportunity for both basic science and clinical research. The fellowship is a one-year program certified by the Endourology Society.
