Today, Loma Linda University Health is home to the largest Urology Department in the Inland Empire.
Approximately half of the last ten chief residents have been accepted into fellowship programs, and former residents are now serving in fifteen different countries. Currently, there are seven full-time faculty members in the section of urology and all of the major urology subspecialties are represented. The division of urology has authored multiple scientific papers and textbook chapters during the past 10 years and currently hosts ongoing research projects on prostate cancer, robotic surgery, renal ischemia, kidney cancer and bioengineering of urology instruments.
Our team is committed to pioneering breakthroughs in the field of urologic health. This commitment to progress paired with the academic, research education focus of Loma Linda University has our department leading the way for advanced urologic care.
To get involved in the exciting urologic advances we’re making, learn about our Urology Residency Program or Give a Gift to support research and education in the Urology Department to support our research and education initiatives.
Our periodic newsletter is produced to keep our alumni and friends updated on happenings within the department.
In this issue we highlight some important research contributions coming from our department, introduce our new residency coordinator and all of the residents.
