  5. 5. Introduction The Section of Urology at MCG offers a fully accredited postgraduate residency training program designed to prepare selected physicians to evaluate, understand, and manage medical and surgical aspects of genitourinary disorders. In addition to providing a rigorous clinical training program, the Urology Section strives to create an atmosphere of scientific curiosity and endeavor. Through the resident match, two applicants are selected to enter the residency each year. Selection includes acceptance for the internship and first year residency training in General Surgery at MCG. This handbook describes many of the policies and procedures associated with the Medical College of Georgia Urology residency, as well as the expectations for successful completion of the program. It will be updated annually. Any questions or concerns can be directed to Dr. Martha K Terris, Section of Urology, 1120 15th Street, Suite BA 8414, Augusta, GA 30912-4050, Telephone: (706) 721-2519, Fax: (706) 721-2548. Mission Statement The mission of the School of Medicine of the Medical College of Georgia is to teach medical students, graduate students, residents, fellows, nurses, and allied health professionals the art of patient care and research related to the understanding and treatment of disease. The Section of Urology is dedicated to extending that mission through a standard of excellence in patient care, collegial relationships within and beyond MCG and extension of urological education opportunities to the local, regional, national and international communities.

Brown, MD Jeffrey Donohoe, MD Kenneth W. Lennox, MD Arthur M. Smith, MD Research Faculty Bao Ling Adam, PhD Clinton R. Webb, PhD Emeritus Faculty Thomas Mills, PhD Donald G. Mode, MD Roy Witherington, MD Program Coordinator Kim D. Maddox
  7. 7. Urology Resident Selection Applicants with one of the following qualifications are eligible for appointment to the MCG urology residency program: 1. Graduates of medical schools in the United States and Canada accredited by the Liaison Committee on Medical Education (LCME). 2. Graduates of colleges of osteopathic medicine in the United States accredited by the American Osteopathic Association (AOA). 3. Graduates of medical schools outside the United States and Canada who meet one of the following qualifications: a. Have received a current valid certificate from the Educational Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates b. Have a full and unrestricted license to practice medicine in a U.S. licensing jurisdiction. c. Have completed a Fifth Pathway program1 provided by an LCME-accredited medical school. The MCG Section of Urology seeks to encourage residency applications from all qualified individuals who have attended accredited medical schools. There is specifically no discrimination on the basis of age, sex, ethnic background, religious beliefs, or sexual orientation. Recognizing the superb academic opportunities available within the section, and the institution at large, MCG particularly encourages applications from individuals with an interest and a proven track record of excellence in scholarly pursuits. All applications received by MCG are independently reviewed by at least 3 faculty members, and decisions regarding interviews are made by consensus. From more than 175 applications, approximately thirty invitations for interview are extended. These interviews are undertaken on up to five separate days in the fall, during which applicants are interviewed by all faculty members, and a variable number of residents. Following adequate and individualized discussion, a resident rank list is determined by mutual agreement among the faculty members. Through the resident match, two applicants are selected to enter the residency each year, from graduating 4th year medical students. Selection includes acceptance for the first year internship training in General Surgery at MCG. Following satisfactory completion of this core training in General Surgery, resident trainees will enter into the formal Urology training program. Although all residents are expected to complete their final year of chief residency four years later, each year's appointment is contingent upon satisfactory progress of the individual resident during the preceding year, and all residency appointments are therefore reviewed and renewed annually. -3-
  8. 8. The MCG urology residency program participates in the program administered through the American Association of Medical College's centralized Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS) matching system. Access to the ERAS system is available at http://www.aamc.org/students/eras/. Matching with MCG Urology via ERAS implies acceptance for the internship in General Surgery at MCG contingent upon submission of application/rank list through the NRMP match for MCG Surgery Prelim/Urology for the PGY1 year. 1 A Fifth Pathway program is an academic year of supervised clinical education provided by an LCME accredited medical school to students who meet the following conditions: i. have completed, in an accredited college or university in the United States, undergraduate premedical education of the quality acceptable for matriculation in an accredited United States Medical school; ii. have studied at a medical school outside the United States and Canada but listed in the World Health Organization Director of Medical Schools; iii. have completed all of the formal requirements of the foreign medical school except internship and/or social service; iv. have attained a score satisfactory to the sponsoring medical school on a screening examination v. have passed either the foreign Medical Graduate Examination in the Medical Sciences, Parts I and II of the examination of the National Board of Medical Examiners, or Steps 1 and 2 of the United States Medical Licensing Examination (USMLE). -4-
  9. 9. Participating Institutions The institutions participating in Urology resident education at the Medical College of Georgia are the Medical College of Georgia Hospitals (including the Children’s Medical Center), and the Veterans Administration Hospital. Residents also may rotate to clinics at the Augusta State Prison under the supervision of MCG Faculty and Eisenhower Army Medical Center under the supervision of the Chief of Urology there. The Medical College of Georgia As the teaching hospital of the Medical College of Georgia, the MCG Hospitals and Clinics include a 520-bed hospital, Ambulatory Care Center with over 80 outpatient clinics in one convenient setting, Specialized Care Center housing a 13-county regional trauma center, Comprehensive Cancer Program, Emergency and Express Care Services. The Medical School, Graduate School, Dental School, School of Nursing, and School of Allied Health are located on campus. There are 190 medical students admitted to the School of Medicine each year. The medical center has 0ver 400 residents in 39 residency and fellowship programs. MCG provides primary and tertiary care for the citizens of the eastern half of Georgia and western portion of South Carolina; the growing general population in the Georgia (3rd highest growth rate of all states in the nation) ensures continued growth of local patient volume. The local patient base is broad, consists of traditional fee-for-service patients, Medicare, and managed care, as well as an indigent care component. The medical center provides care for all prisoners under the care of the Georgia Correctional Healthcare system. The medical center is also increasingly serving as a referral center for patients from all across the United States in many specialized areas. Children’s Medical Center The Children’s Medical Center (CMC) is a free-standing hospital adjacent to, and administratively part of the Medical College of Georgia. The Children's Medical Center has 149-beds, including one of five Neonatal Intensive Care Units in the state. The family-friendly facility has won numerous awards, not only in patient/ parent popularity, but for its bioengineering and architectural advances as well. The facility houses as separate, highly efficient, operating suite designed and staffed specifically for the pediatric population. For more details, please see the CMC Orientation for Surgeons at: http://cmc.mcg.edu/cmcos/surgeon_orientation/. Augusta Veterans Affairs Medical Center The Augusta VAMC primary service area includes 17 counties in Georgia and seven counties in South Carolina; but as a member of the Atlanta Veterans Integrated Service Network (VISN7), veterans who live as far away as Alabama are routinely cared for in the Augusta VAMC. The Downtown Division adjacent to the Medical College of Georgia has 155 beds (52 medicine, 37 surgery, six neurology, and 60 spinal cord injury). The Veterans Affairs Medical Center is connected via an enclosed walkway to MCG Hospital. The VA provides a variety of experience including general adult urology, extensive urologic oncology, and -5-
  10. 10. neurourology in the largest VA spinal cord unit in the nation. Dwight D. Eisenhower Army Medical Center Eisenhower Army Medical Center (EAMC) is the military medical center of the Southeast. The $60M, 300-bed facility is the specialized treatment center for Department of Defense Region 3. The Southeast Regional Medical Command, a headquarters facility for the southeastern United States, is also part of Fort Gordon's medical complex. The hospital is focused on supporting the managed care program instituted by the Department of Defense referred to as TRICARE. The medical center is also a medical teaching facility for residents in both surgical and primary care specialties with emphasis on research and state-of-the-art specialty care. Augusta State Medical Prison The Augusta State Medical Prison (ASMP) is a receiving facility and public state hospital for medically ill prisoners. It serves a large portion of Augusta and the surrounding counties. The PGY-2 MCG Urology resident typically accompanies a urology faculty member to the ASMP Urology clinic twice per month. In addition to general urology clinic, outpatient surgical procedures are performed at this facility. The 2007-2008 academic year is planned for increased capacity, surgical instrumentation, and acuity of care provided, including more involved urologic surgery including radical prostatectomy. -6-
  11. 11. Conferences Didactic conferences with close interaction between faculty, residents, and medical students are hallmarks of effective teaching. The Section of Urology provides a rich calendar of such learning opportunities designed, not only to address the ACGME mandated competencies of Patient Care, Medical Knowledge, Practice-Based Learning, Interpersonal Communication Skills, Professionalism, and Systems-Based Practice, but also prepare them for the radiology and pathology portions of Part I of the American Board of Urology Examination, heighten their understanding of and promote participation in research taking place at the institution, and familiarize them more intimately with the different urologic subspecialties as well as expose them to the local private practice urologists to better enable them to make decisions regarding their options for fellowship and/or academic practice after residency versus a private practice career. All conferences will be posted in the monthly conference schedule; a preliminary schedule for the 2007-2008 academic year begins on page 11. Some elements of the schedule are, by necessity, incomplete such as journal club article assignments and grand rounds speakers. Other conferences are subject to change. The most current version will be distributed via email at the end of each month for the subsequent month. TEACHING CONFERENCES Teaching Conferences are the backbone of the didactic teaching program for urology training. These occur on Mondays at 7:30am and 5:30pm. The conferences take place in the Rinker Library. The only exceptions to the routine conference locations are the MCG Pathology conference and Pediatric Radiology Conference (see below).

The list of patients to be discussed must be submitted by the Chief Resident by the preceding Thursday to the tumor registrar office by emailing the list to Miriam Williams email miriwilliams@mcg.edu or calling 721-2760. UROLOGY/NEPHROLOGY URINARY STONE CONFERENCE Time: First Wednesday of Month at 5:00p (Except June, July, and August) Location: Department of Medicine Conference Room Responsible Faculty: Dr. Pam Fall (Nephrology) -10-
  15. 15. Urology and Nephrology take responsibility for this conference on alternate months. When it is urology’s turn, the PGY-3 resident presents one or two stone patient cases and metabolic evaluation proposed and/or results discussed. Surgical and medical treatment options are discussed. VA UROPATHOLOGY MICROSCOPY SESSION Time: Every Fri. at 8:00am Location: VA Pathology Multi-viewer scope room Responsible Faculty: Dr. Jeff Lee (VA Pathology) All VA urology surgical and clinic specimens from the prior week are reviewed with the attending pathologist and VA urology faculty. Only the residents rotating at the VA are required to attend but all are welcome. Cynthia Fuller in the VA Pathology Office will make the list of cases to be reviewed from the specimens they have received from the OR and urology clinic each week. Any additional cases (outside slides, specimens from other services, re-review of prior cases) should be communicated to her by phone at VA extension 2865 or by at email cynthia.fuller@med.va.gov. The residents can obtain a copy of the list from Cynthia on Thursdays in order to be prepared to present a brief patient history on the patients in which they were involved with the surgical cases and treatment and follow-up plans are discussed. This provides the residents with unique continuity of care experience. GME CORE CURRICULUM SERIES Time: Every Wednesday at noon (lunch provided) and, within 48hours, each presentation is available on-line. Location: Small Auditorium These weekly conferences that run fall through spring are designed to address the ACGME mandated competencies of Patient Care, Medical Knowledge, Practice-Based Learning, Interpersonal Communication Skills, Professionalism, and Systems-Based Practice. Residents are required to view 70% of lectures. A resident who has seen one of the annually repeating lectures is not required to see that lecture again for two years. Since the noon conference on Wednesdays conflicts with the surgical schedule, urology residents may view the on-line archive of this conference as their time allows. To access lectures on-line: 1. Go to http://www.curriculumii.mcg.edu/webct/public/home.pl 2. Select “log on to MyWebCT” 3. Log in by entering your WebCT ID and password (note: do not use special characters {hyphens, apostrophes, etc} and type all letters lowercase).

  32. 32. Research The PGY-3 urology research rotation is 3 months for the 2007-2008 academic year. While this time is inadequate for basic science research, residents are encouraged to pursue the clinical portion of such projects, such as serum collection for proteomic assay, in collaboration with one of the research faculty. Alternatively, residents may choose strictly clinical research studies in an area of their choice mentored by a faculty member with interest in that area. Faculty supervision, clerical support, computer/library facilities, and flexibility in clinical responsibilities are available to residents for clinical research. Many faculty members have existing databases of patient information that can be analyzed by residents either by expanding on the suggestions of the faculty member or developing their own hypothesis for study once approved by the supervising faculty member and institutional review board. PGY-3 residents are required to present a research plan to the section chief and program director prior to the initiation of the rotation. Residents who desire an additional year dedicated to basic science research are supported in their efforts by the Urology Section. Residents performing a research year are encouraged to apply for additional funding through sources such as the American Foundation for Urologic Diseases. MCG Urology has a record of successfully funded resident applications. The PGY-4 and PGY-5 residents routinely attend regional and national meetings such as the Southeastern Section of the American Urological Association and the Annual Meeting of the American Urological Association. Residents at any level with research abstracts accepted for presentation at these selective meetings will also be provided funding and relief of clinical duties to attend. All residents are encouraged to present their research data at local venues such as the Georgia Urological Society and MCG’s Annual Rinker-Witherington Society Meeting. Residents additionally submit their work for publication in peer-reviewed journals and receive substantial guidance from the faculty to navigate the publication process.
