SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads) So I think the answer is "yes" but I need to ask anyway because a surgery resident (non uro) gave me conflicting information. Are most urology programs matching people directly in the 4th year med student match? I always worked on the assumption that this was the most common occurrence. The surgical resident I was talking to told me that she thought most uro residents were actually surgical residents that applied for the AUA natch 1-2 years into their surgery residency. Just to make it more complicated, feel free to address the AOA urology matches too, as I'm osteo student and applying to both to maximize the odds.
