The Minimally Invasive Urologic Surgery Fellowship Program offers a Clinical Certificate in the area of advanced endourology and stone disease, which has an emphasis on endourology and metabolic stone disease, with some exposure to laparoscopic and robotic benign and oncologic procedures.

The Program Director for this fellowship is Dr. Matthew Gettman.

For more information regarding the Endourology/Stone fellowship, please contact program coordinator, Joan Simon @ simon.joan@mayo.edu

This one year fellowship program provides clinical experience with advanced endoscopic surgery for benign prostatic hyperplasia (holmium laser enucleation of the prostate) and stone disease (percutaneous renal access, nephrolithotomy, ureteroscopy), with some exposure to laparoscopic and robotic procedures. As a high-volume quaternary health care facility, the fellow will be exposed to a wide variety of complex endourologic cases and will have direct access to multiple research resources including a multidisciplinary basic science stone research grant, the Rochester Epidemiology Project, and multiple retrospective databases.

The time commitment of the endourology one year program is 80% clinical with 20% research time. Bench space and animal lab facilities are available for research. Such research is encouraged during the fellowship year.

There is no on campus housing. A wide range of housing is available in Rochester within 5 minutes of the clinic.
