Plan to do at least one away rotation at a program that you are interested in applying to and have a good chance of matching. Your rotation will serve as a job audition. UNR Med students as rule are very impressive to other programs. Planning this in late August-September in order to get a letter of recommendation is ideal.
Summer- Early January- Register with AUA Match
November- Deadline to Register for NRMP (If Necessary)
Fall-January- Program Interviews
Early January- Preference list due to AUA Match
Mid-January- AUA Match results released
Research is highly desirable but it doesn’t have to be specifically in Urology
Be prepared to talk about what you have done.
Letters of Recommendation
Three (3) letters required, may get a 4th from research, if applicable
A Chair/Chief’s letter is required
At least 2 letters should be from within the specialty, preferably from academic faculty
Programs begin reviewing applicants as soon as ERAS opens
Programs begin offering Interviews as soon as ERAS opens
It is the applicant's responsibility to contact each of the programs in which he/she is interested and to follow their application and interview procedures. You should be certain you are aware of each program's requirements, including application deadline, policies regarding pre-urology training and participation in the NRMP match
