Jan 25-26, 2018
Dr. Viraj Master, Professor of Urology at Emory University School of Medicine, was invited to Stanford January 25-26, 2018 as the 21st Fenmore Visiting Professor in Urology. This visiting professorship has a long history at Stanford, and has included in recent years Harry Herr, Pat Walsh, Craig Peters and many others.

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!
