Welcome! Thank you for taking the time to learn more about the Johns Hopkins University’s Urology Residency Program. The Brady Urological Institute opened in 1915 and was the first urology residency in the country. Since its inception, the program has trained exceptional clinical and academic urologists, many of whom currently serve as Chairs or Professors at premier urology programs throughout the United States and beyond.
Although our program has a long legacy with a rich tradition of excellence, the Brady remains at the forefront of urologic innovation. Our department continues to push the boundaries of clinical, surgical, and scientific urology. Known world-wide for our many advances in urologic oncology, our Department offers the full experience of training with faculty who are experts in their respective fields including endourology, male reconstruction, female pelvic medicine, voiding dysfunction, infertility and sexual dysfunction, and pediatric urology. Our surgical experience is cutting-edge and utilizes the most state-of-the-art urological technology and techniques, allowing our residents to be facile endoscopists, laparoscopists, open surgeons and roboticists.
One of the truly exciting aspects of our urology residency program is our unaccredited research year that allows our residents to develop their academic portfolio and further their professional development. During this unaccredited year, our residents pursue research in their areas of interest with consistent mentorship from our experienced academic faculty. Our research opportunities are limitless, extending from the basic science, translational, to clinical, educational, and policy initiatives.
Reflective of the innovation inherent in our Department, our educational curriculum continues to evolve to meet the needs of our future urology leaders. From advanced laparoscopy and robotic simulation to elucidation of the “hidden curriculum”, our program provides resident learners with the tools to become the future of academic urology. In order to cultivate this successful learning atmosphere, our department strives to ensure a diverse and inclusive learning environment with a focus on resident and faculty wellness.
If you would like to spend some time with us, please consider applying for a one-month sub-internship. Interested individuals should apply here
We, as the Brady faculty, are excited and proud to help train the next generation of leaders in urology. We invite passionate, collaborative and innovative applicants to apply to be a part of the Brady legacy.

In accordance with the policies and procedures set by the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, the Residency Training Program for the Department of Urology is a formal ACGME accredited post-graduate medical education program.
The Mission of Johns Hopkins SOM is tripartite: Teaching; Research & Patient Care. (Follow this link to read Hospital mission statement)
Similarly, the department of Urology holds these same three elements, as the core of its mission. Our educational program for the residents is a highly structured program designed to provide training in a broad range of urologic practices. Specifically, each level of training provides a graduated series of experiences which culminate in a fully trained academic urologist.
The Brady Urological Institute was founded on the premise that a strong emphasis on basic research is fundamental to the advancement of our field. Hence, our residents are offered multiple research opportunities throughout their residency.
During the third year of urologic training, residents are given 12 months of protected research time. It is during this research time that most of our residents fully mature in their urologic training by identifying specific areas of interest. Since its inception, the Brady Urologic Institute has had a rich tradition in leadership and innovation. In the area of patient care, the Brady Urological Institute has had a particularly strong performance, ranking #1 in the US News & World Report's for 21 consecutive years.
Resident participation in patient care is fundamental to our program, with rotations in both inpatient and outpatient care. The residency training is conducted in two separate hospitals, Johns Hopkins Hospital and the Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center.
Our program is specifically designed to produce academic urologists. Within the last 20 years, virtually all of our resident graduates have assumed faculty positions in major academic centers and many of them have gone on to become chairmen within their institution. In our current era of increasing administrative, bureaucratic and fiscal demands, success in academia requires a strong sense of purpose, excellent mentoring with strong role models, and strong clinical skills.
We believe that our program provides the optimal environment to facilitate such success.
