Applications should be made according to AUA residency match guidelines. Applications are accepted from fourth year medical students and post-graduates. Temple's AUA program number is: 00923386
The Temple Department of Urology interviews applicants on scheduled interview dates only. Once applications are reviewed, interviews will be granted on one of three interview dates by invitation to selected applicants. There is some flexibility in choosing among the three interview dates; however, they are distributed on a first come, first serve basis. Our approach to the candidate interview is that it serves two purposes: the first is that the interviewee is offered an opportunity to become acquainted with the program itself, the residents and faculty, and the expectations placed upon its graduates. The second purpose is that it facilitates resident selection by the Temple faculty.
In accordance with the guidelines established by the Society of Academic Urologists (SAU), interviews for the 2024-2025 season will be conducted virtually via video-based interviews. The interview day starts with a presentation by Dr. Mydlo aimed at providing an overview of the program, followed by individual interviews with representative faculty from each institution in the program.
Additional informal virtual “meet-and-greet” sessions with the current residents will be scheduled to allow applicants to gain further knowledge about the program.

Visiting students will again be allowed to do in-person rotations assuming no change in COVID related guidelines as recommend by the SAU. The Urology department will also be conducting “virtual rotations” that visiting students may apply for through the VSAS program. These virtual rotations will allow the applicant to participate in didactic conferences, small group case based discussions, journal club, tumor board, and other departmental activities. Virtual rotations will be 3 weeks in length and will be offered from June through October.
Through a partnership with the Temple University Office of Health Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion, the Temple Urology Department offers Visiting Clerkship Grants for underrepresented in medicine (UriM) students interested in a rotation in our department. This grant is designed to offset the cost for completing a clinical rotation in our department. More information regarding this grant is available here.
If you are a student, please reference the contact information below in order to set up a rotation.
