The Carolinas Medical Center (CMC) Advanced Practitioner Fellowship in Urology is an intensive 12-month program that prepares advanced practitioners to fill the specialty provider gap in urology, improving patient access and the quality of care in urology practices.
Administered by the McKay Department of Urology at CMC, the fellowship provides advanced didactic education with an introductory three-month multidisciplinary intensive care rotation, followed by a nine-month course of rotations focused on inpatient and ambulatory clinical experience in urology. Graduates will have the clinical knowledge and procedural skill set to provide high quality urologic care in any anticipated future setting.
AP fellows are members of the McKay Department of Urology team, which has ranked among the nation’s best on multiple occasions in the past decade by US News & World Report. Fellows will receive focused, dedicated individual training in addition to the existing urology curriculum already offered to residents and medical students at CMC.
