Application Process

The Department of Urology at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Columbia University Irving Medical Center accepts applications and supplemental documents through the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS) and participates in the American Urological Association Urology Residency Match. Deadline for submitting materials is October 21, 2020.

In order for your ERAS application to be complete the following must be submitted. We are aware that some of the required material may not be available by the deadline, however, please ensure your recommendation letters are uploaded by the deadline date.

  • Completed application
  • Personal statement
  • Curriculum vitae
  • Official transcript from your medical school
  • Dean's letter
  • Three letters of recommendation
  • USMLE board scores 

Once the application is completed, the Interview Selection Committee reviews each application and grants a limited number of interviews.   Applicants will be notified in November if they have been selected for an interview. For additional information, please email Laura Vargas, Program Coordinator, at


The 2020 Residency interviews will be held on:

  • Tuesday, November 17th
  • Tuesday, November 24th
  • Tuesday, December 1st
  • Saturday, December 5th

We will also not be sponsoring any visiting subinternships. We are now offering a 4 week virtual subinternship for the months of September and October. The objectives of this rotation are primarily to expose the student to advanced concepts in urology, to further your understanding of what a career in urologic surgery will entail, to give you an understanding of what it is like to be a urology resident at NYP-Columbia, and to introduce you to the structure and culture of our department at Columbia. This will be accomplished through virtual clinical exposure, frequent small group meetings, and social events. In addition, this rotation will serve as a means of evaluating your potential for future accomplishments in this field.


Selection Process

The final resident selection will be submitted to the AUA Urology Residency Match. Match results will be sent to urology programs, applicants, and medical schools in January 2021. Exact Dates are to be determined.
