Urology Resident Mentorship Program

Mentorship Program for Urology Residents

Welcome from the Program Director

Hello! The Urology Resident Mentorship Program (URMP) was developed to address the issue of support for Residents who have been traditionally underrepresented in medicine or come from otherwise disadvantaged backgrounds.  Residents from these backgrounds and from all accredited Urology residency programs throughout the US are welcome to join. 


The R. Frank Jones Urological Society, Urology Unbound, Hispanic Urological Society of North America and Latinx in Uro along with the UCLA Department of Urology have developed and support this initiative.

Our goal is to increase the likelihood of successfully completing a urologic residency and progressing to careers in urology by providing mentorship throughout the residency process by mentors who understand some of the unique struggles that are faced by residents of these backgrounds.

How the Program Works

The residents get to choose a personal mentor. Each urology resident will match with (1) one available mentor from the roster. Residents can learn more about the volunteer mentors from the roster

Residents should provide us with their top 3 desired mentors. The matching process is on a first come, first serve basis. Once a pairing has been finalized, we will contact each mentor-mentee pair so you can get started!
