Welcome from the Program Director

Christopher Coogan, Residency Program Director

Christopher Coogan, MD

The Residency Program in the Department of Urology at Rush University Medical Center is one of the premier urology training programs in the city of Chicago. Our department has world leading faculty from all subspecialties who are devoted to the education of our residents. The program emphasizes the importance of developing competent clinical and surgical skills and acknowledges the vital role that clinical and basic science research play in the management of patients. Residents gain extensive experience in the diagnosis, management, and treatment of the broad continuum of urology pathology at a busy tertiary referral center. Graduating residents are well prepared to enter into private practice, academics, or fellowship. While the program is demanding and stimulating, it fosters and encourages camaraderie and collegiality between the residents and attending staff.

Program Highlights 

  • Countless opportunities for clinical research
  • Fellowship match at the top programs in each of the urology subspecialties
  • State of the art surgical simulators
  • Tailored mentorship model based on resident interest
  • 1:1 resident to attending ratio
