Minimally Invasive Urologic

             Surgery Fellowship Program

               Northern Ontario School of


         A one-year postgraduate fellowship program providing specialized training in minimally invasive

         urologic surgery. Eligible applicants must have completed a urology residency. The program offers
         hands-on clinical experience with advanced endoscopic surgery for benign prostatic hyperpla-
         sia (Holmium Laser Enucleation of the Prostate, Thulium Fiber Laser Enucleation of the Prostate,
         GreenLight and Holmium Xpeeda Laser Vaporization of the Prostate, and Rezüm Water Vapor

         Therapy) and stone disease (Standard and Mini-Percutaneous Renal Access, Ureteroscopy).

         This program integrates clinical and research work in stone disease and benign prostatic hyper-
         plasia (BPH). It also includes education on the work-up and medical management of BPH and

         stone disease. Our research program strongly encourages innovative questions and ideas.

         There is an expectation to produce 2 clinical manuscripts during the fellowship year.
         The fellowship program is typically 12 consecutive months with the option of two start dates:

            •  January 1st to December 31st
            •  July 1st to June 30th

         department, and institutions.
