The Urology Training programs in the Philippines are now accepting applicants for residency training. There are currently two ways of entering into these programs and they are as follows:

       1. Straight Program - this is a 6 year program wherein the accepted resident has to go through 2 years of General Surgery training in the same institution after which he/she will then be accepted into the next 4-Year Urology Proper Training. The resident is already tagged to proceed through the next 4 years of urology training unless he/she is unable to finished the 1st 2 years of general surgery training or fails in the evaluation of his/her performance. Eligible for this are Medical School graduates licensed to practice medicine in the Philippines.

       2. 4 Year Urology Training Program - some institutions do not have straight programs and they only accept residents into the 4-Year Urology Training Program. Eligible for this program are those with at least 2 years of General Surgery training accredited by the PSGS.
