Updated: July 18, 2022
Nizar Bou Diab, M.D., became the first resident to graduate from the Hackensack University Medical Center Department of Urology residency program.
Accredited since 2017, the Department of Urology residency program provides five years of urology training, instructional and mentorship excellence, subspecialty training and research opportunities through its affiliation with Hackensack Meridian School of Medicine. The program consists of 6 months of general surgical training and 4 ½ years of clinical urology training.
Throughout the program, residents have access to one-on-one mentoring by supportive, experienced attending physicians across a variety of subspecialty areas. Residents also benefit from a collaborative learning environment that allows them to not only learn from world-class attending urologists at a high-volume department in a renowned research hospital but also from senior residents and interdisciplinary health care providers.
The Department of Urology received approval from the national Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) Review Committee to add a second urology resident position beginning in 2022 — doubling the size of the department’s residency program, which previously recruited one resident per year.
