Santa Clara Valley Medical Center

751 South Bascom
San Jose, CA 95128

The Santa Clara Valley Medical Center serves as the county and city medical facility for Santa Clara County and the city of San Jose, with 641 inpatient beds and nearly 100,000 emergency room visits yearly. It is approximately a 30 minute drive South of Stanford University Medical Center. It houses the Regional Federal Spinal Cord and Head Injury Rehabilitation Center for Northern California, and thus provides in-depth exposure to neurourology. Valley Medical Center is also the Regional Trauma Center, and as such, provides experience in the diagnostic evaluation and management of patients with urologic trauma. The institution also provides experience in a wide variety of common and unusual urologic problems indigenous to specific patient populations (e.g., genitourinary tuberculosis and stone disease). On a voluntary basis during this rotation, the resident has the opportunity to participate monthly with one of the faculty at a nearby vasectomy clinic.
