Applications should be made according to AUA residency match guidelines. Applications are accepted from fourth year medical students and post-graduates. In accordance with the 2019 ACGME regulations, the PGY1 year is now considered the first year of urology training, with 4 months of urology and 8 months of general surgery rotations performed during this year. Please reference the AUA web site for further details. 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 2020-21 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.

Medical Student Rotation
Typically, students with an interest in the Urology program at Temple are encouraged to take a clinical elective of any duration sometime in the summer, fall or winter. This will enable you to better evaluate our program and permit a better evaluation of you by our faculty and residents.
For the 2020-21 academic year, in person clinical electives are not permitted due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The Urology department will 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. Both 2 and 4-week virtual rotations are available.
If you are a student, please reference contact information for Courtney Chappelle below in order to set up a rotation.
