A Letter from the Urology Residency Program Director and Coordinator

Thank you for your interest in the Urology Residency Program. Our mission is clear, we want to provide you with the best experience possible to allow you to be the urologist that you want to be. You will graduate fully competent to start practice the next day or to enter a fellowship. Consistently 50% of our residents move on to fellowship.

We have two adult hospitals Cleveland Clinic Akron General and Summa Health System and Akron Children’s hospital. All are dedicated to state of the art care and medical education. An added benefit is that they are less than 10 minutes apart!

We have 18 adult faculty with all urologic subspecialties represented and 3 pediatric faculty committed to your education. I truly feel that we have the best of all worlds – outstanding faculty with surgical and clinical volumes that will provide you with the competency to practice anywhere in the country and a dedication to teaching and research. All of this in a community that is easy to live in with no traffic problems, low cost of living and an environment that is supportive and friendly.

Thank you for considering our Urology Residency Program. If you have any questions about the program, please contact Kimberly Sloan Stakleff, PhD in the Department of Urology at 330-344-8286.
