Why our program could be right for you

The Montefiore-Einstein Urology Program offers its residents early operative experience, diverse research opportunities and broad exposure to a range of urologic conditions. Residents also have access to strong mentorship, and benefit from a positive culture that advocates doing what’s best for our patients, residents, faculty and staff. 

Our faculty are enthusiastic about teaching, and continue to develop more interactive and engaging ways to teach our residents. Within the program, residents play a key role in caring for our patients and are important members of every care team. In this supportive environment, our residents become a close-knit group, training side-by-side in our facilities and exploring New York City in their free time.

An unmatched diversity of experience

As a premiere academic medical center serving the Bronx, Westchester and the Hudson Valley, Montefiore-Einstein offers its postgraduate trainees comprehensive exposure to a broad diversity of patients and pathologies. The diverse range of experience available prepares our postgraduate trainees for future careers in their chosen field, be it in the research or clinical and/or non-clinical setting.

Faculty and scientists at the forefront of research

Live and work close to the best of everything

The Bronx, New York City’s northernmost borough, is a culturally rich neighborhood placed at the intersection of Manhattan and its surrounding regions. Our postgraduate trainees typically live in hospital housing or off-site in nearby Riverdale, Lower Westchester or Manhattan, and have access to an unmatched diversity of experiences beyond the program itself. 

In the Bronx, with its ample parks and gardens, you’ll learn first-hand why it’s known as “the City’s Greenest Borough.” The neighborhood offers plenty of local food, art, sports and culture, and is just a subway ride away from Manhattan’s famed theaters, museums and attractions. 

As a resident of the Tri-State region, you’ll have unmatched access to the city’s cultural offerings, not to mention the bounty of outdoor excursions that are available just beyond. Day-trips and weekend excursions to the Hudson Valley, Catskills, Long Island or New Jersey provide ample opportunities for swimming, hiking, biking, skiing and other seasonal activities.
