Montefiore, in its collaboration with our Albert Einstein College of Medicine, provides residents the opportunity to participate in pioneering research in the field of urology. Our full-time scientists, who staff our Department of Urology Research Laboratory, provide various basic science and translational research opportunities to residents-in-training. Residents have the unique opportunity to work with our full-time scientists and physician researchers.
Facilitating Individual Efforts
When participating in Montefiore’s Urology residency program, the opportunities available in research are limited only by a resident’s own enthusiasm and determination. Montefiore allows for residents to seek their own answers to questions they run into during their time working in the field.
The completion of Montefiore’s residency program does not require research or lab work, though participation in these initiatives is highly encouraged and facilitated by our researchers.
Interested residents have the opportunity to work with animal models, cell and tissue culture, plasmid-based gene transfer and advanced immunohistochemical techniques. In addition to the basic sciences, residents are exposed to a robust clinical research program facilitated by active collaborations with the Departments of Oncology, Radiology, Nephrology and Radiation Oncology.
