Virtual interviews will be held on the following three days: Tuesday, November 2; Monday, November, 8; and Friday, November 19.  We plan to conduct interviews in two different sessions (AM and PM) on each of these days

Applicants can begin using ERAS to complete applications starting in mid-October 2020 as per the updated timeline in light of the COVID-19 pandemic. On Friday, October 22nd, the University of Kentucky Urology Program will send offers for interviews; this is in accordance of the policy for standardization by the Society of Academic Urologists. On Monday, October 25th, each applicant will be able to accept or decline interview offers and October 26th is considered "flush day", when applicants may decline a previously accepted offer in favor of a waitlist offer.  Virtual interviews will be held in mid-November through December with match results released in February 2022. 

The University of Kentucky Urology Residency Program is a five year program, consisting of an initial internship year in general surgery, with four months on the urology service, followed by four years of urology.  The residency is compiled of three trainees per year. The goal of the program is to produce an exceptionally well-trained urologist qualified to enter either academic urology or private practice.  The residency has allowed for graduates to obtain fellowships or enter directly into practice with confidence. The residency program uses adjoining facilities at University of Kentucky Hospital and Veterans Affairs Medical Center (VAMC) as well as St. Joseph Hospital, a community hospital located less than one mile from UK. The four years of urology training are described in more detail under Rotations.
