What is urology?
Urology is the branch of medicine that focuses on the diseases of the male and female urinary tract systems and the male reproductive organs. Urologists are experts on diseases of the kidneys, adrenal glands, ureters, urinary bladder, urethra, and the male reproductive organs (testes, epididymis, vas deferens, seminal vesicles, prostate and penis).
Diversity and Inclusion
The OHSU Department of Urology is committed to providing the finest urologic training available and producing urologists with expertise in all aspects of medical and surgical care.
We are committed to a training environment inclusive of all cultures, languages, socioeconomic backgrounds, racial and ethnic backgrounds, disabilities, religions, gender identities and expressions, sexual orientations, medical training (osteopathic and allopathic) and other areas in a manner that promotes diversity in our future urologic leaders.
We provide mentorship and support to our residents as well as opportunities to work with diverse patient populations. We are developing training and education surrounding diversity/equity/inclusion and healthcare disparities to promote these values within the department.
