Statement of Goals:
The objective of this course is to familiarize the student with the fundamental principles of the management of patients with genitourinary cancers.
Learning Activities
The student is an active part of the patient care team, participating in inpatient rounds, outpatient clinics, the operating room, and patient management and research conferences covering the broad field of urologic oncology. The emphasis is on the multidisciplinary management of genitourinary cancers and the treatment of cancer in the context of the overall health care of the patient. The student works closely with the urologic faculty whose primary specialty is oncology, as well as with medical oncologists, radiotherapists, and pathologists to learn firsthand about the wide variety of types of urologic cancers and the natural history, prognosis and management of each.
