Why Urology Residents Choose Montefiore

Our physicians, at the forefront of their fields, actively mentor and cultivate a new generation of leaders committed to healthcare that is both excellent and equitable. Residents and other healthcare professionals receive a unique opportunity for hands-on training in one of the most diverse areas in the country—one where the population is global and healthcare needs are great.
Our progressive focus on comprehensive rather than fragmented care provides the ideal training ground for healthcare leaders of the future. To remain on the cutting-edge of training, we develop and expand programs that advance teamwork, communication and decision-making. These programs, coupled with Montefiore's mission and vision draw residents from the nation’s top medical schools, including Albert Einstein College of Medicine, Harvard Medical School and Yale School of Medicine, who are particularly committed to increasing access to excellent care in an underserved population.

Skae, MD, Vice President for Graduate Medical Education, Montefiore Medical Center; and several other Montefiore leaders—have trained at Montefiore.
