I couldn't find any old threads from students who might have done an elective at U of L. Has anyone here done one and is willing to share info on schedule, housing.. etc? Thank you.

Thinking about urology, but have an interest that lies mainly in andrology and male infertility.
Does this look bad when applying?
Are these fellowships competitive and/or highly sought after?

Does anyone have any advice about publishing Urology case reports? Oddly enough, most Urology case report journals seem to be open access / require an author payment to publish.
Does anyone have any advice / know of any good journals to submit a urology case report that is not open access? Thank you!

I'm a IMG. I'm currently doing residency in Urology in my country, I'm in 3 rd year. I was also doing my steps at same time. I did 235 on step 1 and 230 on my step 2. I have 2 podiums presented on the national meeting of urology society of my country. I'm definitively finishing here my resisdency but then obviously I want to match in any program in USA. I want to know how do you see my possibilities and what kind of suggestions do you have

For those of us who are reapplying to next year's app cycle, are there any programs that refuse/prefer not to interview/accept reapplicants regardless of improvement to their application. The cost of applying was a lot and I imagine reapplying will cost almost double. I'd like to be able to skip applying to programs that won't even look at my application.

Has anyone been able to apply for one? I sent an email to the contact person on their website and no one has gotten back to me for a few weeks...
Thanks for the help!

Since a couple of program vacacies have popped up this week, it just got me thinking about how these get filled. I can imagine there might be someone in some other program who might be interested in transferring, but how do they garner the support of their home institution? I mean programs with vacancies will ask for LORs and stuff, but don't PDs get upset/offended when/if their residents want to transfer?

Hi to everybody!
I am a US citizen-IMG, in the top 5% of my class, graduating in 2016 with honors. Scored a 247 on Step1. I don't have any publications. I have read several information for the urology residence, although I still need to make a couple of questions...
First, and most important... What do I need to do, to success the urology match?
