Six osteopathic urology programs have participated for the first time in the Urology Residency Match Program, the Society of Academic Urologists (SAU) and American Urological Association announced last week.
In preparation for the transition to a single graduate medical education accreditation system, the six programs recently obtained accreditation from the Accreditation Council of Graduate Medical Education, which allowed them to participate in the recent Urology Match. All six programs will be welcoming new DO residents in July; some programs offered slots exclusively to DOs.
“We are proud of the continued success of the Urology Residency Match,” SAU President Stephen Y. Nakada, MD, said in a statement. “The record number of programs registered, positions filled and the inclusion of American Osteopathic Association are positive trends for the specialty and a testament to the increased level of interest many have in urology.”
