The Division of Urology at the Schulich School of Medicine & Dentistry, Western University is committed first and foremost to the provision of excellence in patient care. As a tertiary referral centre, our clinical catchment area covers all of Southwestern Ontario and beyond. As such, a high volume of clinical activity is conducted in various subspecialty areas of urology including andrology/male sexual health, urinary incontinence, oncology and urinary stone disease. Our program is one of the few locations in Canada at the moment with access to the da Vinci Robot surgical platform. We also possess one of only three full-time Shock Wave Lithotripsy units in the province of Ontario. Our division currently comprises eleven full-time clinical faculty, each possessing subspecialty academic interests.

As an academic program within the Department of Surgery at Western, we are also devoted to comprehensive surgical education and cutting-edge research in various subspecialty disciplines. Several members of the faculty are internationally renowned for their clinical and research expertise. A wide array of clinical trials is ongoing involving division members. There are also 3 full-time PhDs within the program, who are actively involved in basic science urological research.

Western is well known as an outstanding site for surgical education. A well-developed core surgery curriculum, a surgical skills laboratory and high-volume clinical exposure are just a few of the opportunities afforded our future surgeons. Fellowship opportunities are offered in andrology, transplantation, oncology and minimally-invasive surgery/endourology.

We hope our website will provide you with a glimpse of the people and infrastructure that are the strengths of our division.
