This application, intended mostly for medical students interested in urology and urology residents includes the following sections: forums, videos, and news. Most of the forums are open forums where medical students interested in urology and urology residents can post questions and in turn responses to all things urology, especially urology residency and fellowship matches. This includes information on current residency programs from both chairman/residency directors and students/residents perspectives. There is ample information about the current match, including interview offers and dates, interview switches/cancellations, and basic information about life on the trail. The website truly takes an applicant from first having thoughts of applying through matching. There are also archived forums from the previous few years if one wants to look up more information out there about programs, step1 scores in urology, importance of research, etc. Additionally, there are forums for each urology fellowship, job search discussions/postings, and general announcements in the urologic community. The app also includes links to excellent videos covering most urologic procedures as well as a section with links to articles in the current issue of several urologic journals.
Sexiness of Interface/Ease of Use:
This app has a simple and easy-to-use interface, without many bells or whistles. It is very easy to move back and forth between the different sections and information contained within and would be easy to operate for even the most novice iPhone user. I enjoyed navigating through this app.
The information contained within this app is perfect for the intended audience. For any medical students interested in urology, they will find information about most urology residency programs out there as well as postings from medical students or urology residents that should answer any question they may have about urology programs and the match itself. Most of the information on the forums is from other medical students, with few posts from current residents/attendings. This may make some of the information questionable; however, overall I found the site to be quite useful as I myself navigated through the urology match. The fellowship forums are present, although with few postings, making it not as useful as the residency match sections. The videos on a multitude of urologic procedures are excellent both for medical students and residents prepping for upcoming cases. The videos may also be useful for practicing urologists to show them new techniques and complex cases that others have performed.
This is an excellent resource for urology applicants and current residents that I found to be extremely helpful as I went through the match. Most of the information on the forums is reliable and helped me a great deal from originally applying through to match day. The video links are extremely helpful during medical student sub-I/AI rotations and for residents preparing for cases.
