News and Events
Residency interviews were a success!
Candidates from all over the country traveled to Stanford on 11/17 and 11/28 to interview for a spot in the Urology residency program.
A new study by Kai Dallas and colleagues published online ahead of print in the Journal of Endourology, suggests that greater precipitation, and not just higher temperatures, in a region may place its residents at increase risk of urinary stone disease.
New publication accepted in Urology
Drs. Craig Stauffer, Chris Elliott and Tin Ngo's recent publication "Is Neurogenic Bladder A Risk Factor for Febrile Urinary Tract Infection After Ureteroscopy and if so, why?" was just accepted for publication in Urology.
Meet our incoming fellows!
Chief Resident Dr. Michael Davenport matched into a Reconstruction Fellowship at UT Southwestern in Dallas, TX with Dr. Allen Morey, that he will begin later next year following graduation.
