For more than a decade, McKay Urology, located in Charlotte and Lincolnton, NC, has been a major component of UNC-Chapel Hill's Urology Residency Program.
Our urology faculty for Carolinas Medical Center provides clinical residency training to UNC urology residents. UNC urology residents spend six months with McKay Urology as part of a five-year program. Other CMC residents rotating on urology include:
- Internal medicine residents
- Family medicine residents
- OB/GYN residents
- Physical medicine rehabilitation residents
- General surgery residents
The Urology Residency Program has significantly improved the urologic care of indigent and trauma patients at Carolinas Medical Center.
Education for Physicians
The McKay Department of Urology has provided a weekly, region-wide urologic education program for physicians and allied healthcare providers. These conferences at CMC are broadcast to three other urologic communities via their telemedicine sites:
- Carolinas HealthCare System Cleveland - Shelby
- Carolinas Medical Center-Pineville - Charlotte
- Carolinas Medical Center-Union - Monroe
The program is varied among four formats: a guest speaker, a case conference, discussions of morbidity and mortality and a journal club.
This initiative keeps abreast of the latest developments in urology, ensuring the best care available for their patients. The program is the only urologic continuing medical education program in the region.
