Urology SHO:

  • We offer exposure to a wide range of Core and Specialist Urological Surgery at WSHT.
  • There are weekly new patient “one stop” clinics where you’ll be able to see new urological presentations and have access to flexible cystoscopy and a variety of scans. 
  • Follow up clinics are spread throughout the week and we’d encourage attendance at the sub-specialist consultant clinics
  • You’ll be able to develop your leadership and training skills with the foundation doctors and Surgical Care Practicioners, and there are three teaching ward rounds per week
  • We’d hope that you’d attend three operating lists a week, with an aim to gain competency in independent cystoscopy, ureteric stenting and scrotal exploration by the end of the year to prepare you for your higher surgical training
