Goals

  • Gain knowledge in pre- and post-operative care and intraoperative technical skills with an emphasis on urologic oncology patients.
  • Develop a knowledge base for decision making regarding use of endourologic surgical therapies for urologic malignancies.
  • Learn basic principles of urologic laparoscopic surgery.

Objectives

Following rotations as a first- and third-year urology resident on the Oncology service, the resident will be able to:

  • Completely manage postoperatively patients who have undergone large open or laparoscopic urologic oncologic procedures, such as radical nephrectomy, radical cystectomy with various types of diversion, radical prostatectomy and retroperitoneal lymph node dissection.
  • Use appropriate D-H care pathways and instruct the interns in their use.
  • Recognize post-operative complications and initiate prompt and proper intervention.
  • Increase knowledge of urologic cancer therapies and decision making process regarding relative treatments.
  • Demonstrate increased surgical skills in endoscopy, laparoscopy and open surgery to include oncologic procedures such as transurethral resection of bladder tumors, radical nephrectomy, radical cystectomy with an ileal conduit, and radical prostatectomy.

The chief resident, in addition to achieving the above objectives, will be able to demonstrate surgical competency in endoscopy, laparoscopy and open surgery to include oncologic procedures such as endoscopic treatment of transitional cell cancers of the upper and lower urinary tract, radical nephrectomy, partial nephrectomy, radical cystectomy with all forms of diversion, radical prostatectomy, and retroperitoneal lymph node dissection.
