Division of Urology

Welcome

The faculty and staff in the Division of Urology at the University of Vermont Medical Center remain fully invested in delivering the highest quality of care to our patients while also creating an atmosphere that facilitates and maximizes the education of our students and residents and creating an environment that supports discovery through meaningful laboratory and clinical research. With over 12,000 patient visits and surgeries annually, Vermont’s only academic subspecialty urology practice delivers integrated care delivery for the most complex problems that patients may have in the urologic domain. The immediate access and constant interaction with physicians in other specialties in the area ensures that truly patient-centric, multidisciplinary care be delivered to each and every one of our patients, no different than we would personally each expect for the care of our own family members.

Research

The Division continues to have research activities both in the clinic and the laboratory that are federally funded as well as industry funded. The attention to discovery, albeit in an ever more challenging funding environment, remains among the most ardent and important efforts we can have to deliver on the necessary symbiosis of quality patient care and academic medicine.
