The Chief will direct the clinical, educational, and research activities for the Section, as well as the planning and building of a future Urologic Surgery Residency Program. This is a great chance to join a dynamic, academic multi-specialty group practice providing comprehensive, multi-disciplinary care for adults and children supported by state-of-the-art technology, advanced diagnostic tools and treatment options including Da Vinci Robots (Xi, X, and SP), ultrasound, and MRI guided prostate biopsy.
