Program Description

The Urology Residency Training Program of the Philippine General Hospital consists of six years of postgraduate training, including two core years of general surgery and four years of clinical urology.  The program is designed to prepare selected physicians to evaluate, understand and manage medical and surgical aspects of genitourinary disorders.
