  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.

  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 the at least 3 faculty members, and decisions regarding interviews are made by consensus. From more than 150 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, usually from among graduating 4th year medical students. Selection includes acceptance for the internship and first year residency 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. 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/. 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). -3-
  8. 8. 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. 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 180 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 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 child-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/. Veterans Administration Hospital 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 neurourology in the largest VA spinal cord unit in the nation. -4-
  9. 9. 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 2005-2006 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. The urology schedule is also posted on-line for ready access dates, times, locations, and any changes. To access the on-line calendar, go to: http://calendar2.mcg.edu/scripts/publish/webevent.pl click "Urology" on the bottom of the list of calendars and it will take you to the current week. TEACHING CONFERENCES Teaching Conferences are the backbone of the didactic teaching program for urology training. These occur on Mondays at 7:00am and 5:30pm. The 7:00am conference takes place in the Rinker Library; the default location of the 5:30pm conference is Classroom BC-130 (occasional relocation to the Rinker Library will announced in advance by email).

The next meeting is scheduled for February 17-18, 2006. Monthly Conference Schedule The following pages contain a draft of the monthly 2005-2006 conference schedule.

The urology schedule is also posted on-line for ready access dates, times, locations, and any changes.

  28. 28. Research Dr. Vijay Kumar is Director of Urology Research and runs an exciting, productive basic science laboratory studying ways to induce programmed cell death (apoptosis) in prostate cancer. Other basic science laboratories on the MCG campus also focus on urologic disease processes. Other investigators with appointments in the urology section include Dr. Clinton Webb, whose work focuses on the physiology of male sexual function, and Dr. Bao Ling Adam, whose research is aimed at identification of novel serum proteins and serum protein patterns as markers of presence and severity of prostate cancer. The 2005-2006 academic year brings the inauguration of a urology research rotation. This will be a 2-month rotation for PGY-3 residents. 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. 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. -24-
  29. 29. Overview of Residency Rotations PGY-1: The first post-graduate year (PGY-1) is the time to develop a broad experience in surgical patient care by exposure to rotations in many different fields. The entire year is spent in General Surgical training, which is designed to provide the trainee with a thorough grounding in general surgical principles, including preoperative and postoperative care of the surgical patient and foundations in technical surgical skills upon which ongoing urologic training will be based. This year will include a rotation on the Urology service. PGY-2: First Year Training in Urology (PGY-2) is split between MCG and the VA (6 months each). The resident’s primary experience is in the outpatient clinics at these facilities where data gathering skills, clinical judgment, treatment plan development and professionalism are developed. Technical skills are developed in minor surgical procedures such as circumcision and vasectomy, as well as urodynamics procedures, transrectal ultrasound and prostate biopsy, and office cystoscopic and fluoroscopic procedures. As part of the urology team, PGY-2 residents take part in the postoperative management of in-patients and in the operating room for larger cases and when on call. PGY-3: During the PGY-3 year of Urology training, the trainee spends one month in the Surgical Intensive Care Unit, two months doing research and the remaining time split between the MCG Adult Service and the Augusta Veterans Affairs Medical Center as Senior Resident. Under the supervision of the Chief Resident and Urology faculty members at the VA, the Senior Resident assumes charge of the entire inpatient and outpatient Urology Service. While on both rotations, the resident actively participates in all aspects of endourology, open scrotal, and penile procedures as well as all ESWL procedures at MCG. The PGY-3 resident rotating at MCG will be intimately involved with the renal transplantation service throughout the year (with the exception of the 1 month during which the PGY-4 participates in a dedicated transplant rotation), including interpretation of donor renal arteriograms, selection of kidney to be harvested, and performing all living donor nephrectomies. PGY-4: During the PGY-4 year, the resident serves as Acting Chief Resident in Urology for at the Augusta Veterans Affairs Medical Center and six months on the MCG Pediatric Urology Service. The PGY-4 resident also participates in one-month rotations on the Transplant/Vascular Service and the Female Urology Service. The Pediatric Urology Service rotation at MCG's Children's Medical Center (CMC) is a specialty rotation with surgical experience similar to many pediatric urology fellowship programs. Under the supervision of the Urology faculty members at the VA, the Acting Chief Resident assumes charge of the Urology Service. While on the VA Urology Service, the resident actively participates in all aspects of endourology and increasingly demanding major open oncology and reconstructive procedures as their skills develop. The rotation at the VA hospital is comparable in depth, breadth, and responsibility to a Chief Resident year at many other programs, and provides our residents with an unusual clinical opportunity. PGY-5: The PGY-5 year of urological training is spent predominantly at MCG as Chief Resident on the Adult Urologic. The Chief Resident provides oversight and back-up for the VA Urology Service during the 6 months that the PGY-3 is on the VA rotation and participates in selected, technically demanding surgical procedures at the Augusta VA Medical Center. During this final year of training, the Chief Residents are afforded considerable responsibility for patient care in the clinics, on the wards, and in the operating rooms. They are also responsible for teaching junior house staff and medical -25-
