Hospital Rotations

Montefiore Hospital, Moses Campus
The rotation at Montefiore Hospital is an intense clinical experience with high-acuity patients. The Moses Campus Emergency Department is one of the busiest in the nation and cares for a diverse population of patients. During the Moses rotation, residents participate in standard open and endoscopic surgery, pelvic floor and reconstructive urology, and a high volume of robotic cases. Clinic experience in female urology, urologic oncology and general urology is also included in this rotation.

Jack D. Weiler Hospital, Einstein Campus
The Weiler rotation provides exposure to both a full-time academic and a voluntary private-practice urology service. This busy hospital, located next to Albert Einstein College of Medicine, offers residents the opportunity to participate in the care of patients with a wide range of adult urologic disorders, including genitourinary cancer, nephrolithiasis and voiding dysfunction.

With a full complement of facilities for complex stone surgery and robotics, the Weiler rotation significantly augments the surgical experience of the Urology house staff at each level of training.

Children’s Hospital at Montefiore (CHAM), Moses Campus and Einstein Campus
During the PGY-3/URO-2 year, six months are devoted to a Pediatric Urology rotation. Though it is based primarily at CHAM, it also includes care of our youngest patients in the newborn nursery and neonatal intensive care unit at Weiler Hospital.

In addition to providing a rich operative experience, with a high volume of open, laparoscopic and endourologic cases, the rotation offers an early introduction to chief resident responsibility, guided by the Department’s dedicated Pediatric Urology faculty.

The residents at CHAM manage their patients before, during and after surgeries. This allows our outpatient clinics and inpatient consults at CHAM to establish a continuity of care. Many pediatric patients suffer from comorbid conditions, and resident education and research opportunities are enhanced by collaborative relationships with other departments, including Pediatric Nephrology, Radiology, Endocrinology and Genetics.

Montefiore Hutchinson Campus
Approximately 70 percent of urologic surgery is performed on an outpatient basis in the United States. Residents in the Montefiore Urology Program benefit from the recent opening of Montefiore’s Hutchinson Campus, a 200,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art outpatient surgical facility located close to Albert Einstein College of Medicine. The Department of Urology provides daily clinical and surgical services at the Hutchinson Campus, and residents-in-training are fully integrated into the practice at this new facility.
