Our Urological Surgery residency is sponsored by Charleston Area Medical Center (CAMC),  a non-profit  1000-bed tertiary health care system located in Charleston, West Virginia, serving a patient population of 500,000 in central and southern WV.  CAMC plays a major role in health care in the region by offering multiple West Virginia University-affiliated Graduate Medical Education programs, Level I Trauma care, kidney transplantation, robotic surgery, and a new Cancer Center in addition to many other services.



Our ACGME accredited Urology residency accepts two residents per year for the five-year program through the ERAS and NRMP systems.  Current residents and staff urologists come to CAMC from across the US.  Faculty specialties include:  Oncology, Andrology- Infertility, Lower Urinary Reconstruction, Kidney Transplantation, Endourology, as well as General Urology.  

The program’s popular Pediatric Urology experience is gained through a two-month rotation at Nationwide Children’s Hospital in Columbus, Ohio, during PGY3.  All other learning experiences and consultative services occur in Charleston, WV,  at CAMC hospital facilities located within a few minutes of each other.

The goal of the faculty and staff at CAMC is to prepare graduates for entry into careers in Urology, having acquired basic and advanced urologic knowledge and skills necessary to practice in their chosen areas.  Other areas of program emphasis are interdisciplinary institutional-level quality improvement and patient safety projects, while fostering an environment of scientific curiosity and learning.
