The Pediatric Urology Fellowship at Cincinnati Children’s is a comprehensive, ACGME-accredited two-year program. Our curriculum covers both clinical and research practice, and is specifically designed to prepare graduates for either an academic career in pediatric urology or work in a high volume clinical practice. All graduating fellows are eligible for the Pediatric Urology CAQ awarded by the American Board of Urology.

For fellows beginning July 2021, the new two year ACGME-accredited curriculum will go into effect. More information to follow regarding the new rotation schedule.

The first year of Pediatric Urology Fellowship training is devoted to the mastery of clinical pediatric urology. We expose fellows to several areas of specialization within pediatric urology, including:

  • Complex genitourinary reconstruction
  • Disorders of Sexual Development (DSD)
  • Pediatric urolithiasis
  • Minimally invasive urological surgery (including robotic assisted surgery)
  • The Healthy Bladder Clinic, for patients with dysfunctional voiding
  • Fetal (prenatal) urology
  • Clinical effectiveness and outcomes research

During the second year of the Pediatric Urology Fellowship, the fellow is exposed to a wide variety of basic science research in the Pediatric Urology Lab, part of the Cincinnati Children’s Research Foundation. The lab’s current research focus is on the relationship between the CNS and the lower urinary tract and how stress can induce changes in bladder function and morphology.

The clinical fellow also spends time on several elective rotations, which may include:

  • Pediatric nephrology
  • Neonatal intensive care
  • Pediatric surgery
  • Pediatric imaging

In addition to the basic science component and electives, second-year fellows have the option to audit a MPH course at the University of Cincinnati. This opportunity will give fellows valuable exposure to outcomes research.
