Since my goal is to become a Urologist I wanted to give everyione   some insight on what Urology is exactly. I am sure most of you already   know what it is but for those who do not, this might give you a general   idea:

From Wikipedia

  "Urology is the surgical specialty that focuses on   the urinary tracts of males and females, and on the reproductive system   of males. Medical professionals specializing in the field of urology are   called urologists and are trained to diagnose, treat, and manage   patients with urological disorders. The organs covered by urology   include the kidneys, ureters, urinary bladder, urethra, and the male   reproductive organs (testes, epididymis, vas deferens, seminal vesicles,   prostate and penis). Both Urologists and General Surgeons operate on   the adrenal glands."



  What is a Urologist? Urology Channel

  A   urologist is a physician who has specialized knowledge and skill   regarding problems of the male and female urinary tract and the male   reproductive organs. Because of the variety of clinical problems   encountered, knowledge of internal medicine, pediatrics, gynecology, and   other specialties is required of the urologist. Urology is classified   as a surgical subspecialty. A urologist with advanced qualifications in   surgery may be a fellow of the American College of Surgeons (FACS).


There   are many more sites that offer great information on Urology. If there   are any other students or even Urologist in this community please send   me a message, I would love to connect and talk with you. Another great   site I wanted to mention was **** this website has great infromation and   resources about urology and has been online since 1995 Jurology has   tons of news and infromation as well. I spend at least 1 hour a day on   it.
