The University of Iowa Department of Urology is known worldwide for its educational, research, and clinical expertise. The department is actively involved in undergraduate, graduate, and postgraduate education.

These educational activities provide basic knowledge of genitourinary tract anatomy, function, and disease and offer career preparation in clinical or academic urologic surgery. To achieve these aims and to keep abreast of the expansion of urological knowledge, our faculty has developed various areas of special interest, including general urology, urologic oncology, pediatric urology, andrology, sexual dysfunction, urolithiasis, urodynamics and reconstructive urology, and laparoscopic and robotic surgery.

The department actively recruits top candidates to serve one- and two-year fellowships in clinical and research settings. These fellowships allow the department to utilize the expertise of physicians who bring innovative and dedicated skills to the treatment of patients or the pursuit of research goals, and they enable the fellows to broaden their knowledge of their chosen field.
