The Urology Residency Program is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education. The program is reviewed annually and has maintained its annual accreditation.

Starting with the 2024-2025 Academic Year, we will offer three positions. (3-3-3-3-3). The five-year program integrates the clinical, research, and teaching facilities at Henry Ford Hospital, Children's Hospital of Michigan, and Henry Ford West Bloomfield Hospital.

We participate in the American Urological Association match program and use the ERAS application process.

The Vattikuti Urology Institute (VUI), Henry Ford Hospital Urology Program offers three positions yearly (3-3-3-3-3) for our 5-year residency program. Our residents train with highly-skilled clinical staff at three hospitals. VUI residents receive an excellent experience in all facets of urology and are able to utilize the latest technology when training with us. VUI has over 20 full –time clinical staff members, and three associate staff. The clinical rotations are mainly at Henry Ford Hospital and Children Hospital of Michigan, 10 minutes from Henry Ford Hospital.

The Vattikuti Urology Institute is a nationally recognized institution in urology. VUI (the Department of Urology) is part of the Henry Ford Health. All of the full-time Vattikuti Urology Institute staff are members of the Henry Ford Medical Group, which is comprised of more than 1200 physicians and scientists and provides full-time coverage for Henry Ford Hospital and Henry Ford West Bloomfield Hospital. In addition, the senior staff physicians have faculty appointments with Wayne State University School of Medicine or Michigan State University.

Surgeons at the VUI pioneered the development of the field of robotic-assisted laparoscopic surgery for prostate cancer and other urological diseases including renal and bladder cancer, adrenal diseases, pediatric urological disorders, and female urological diseases. We recently partnered with the transplant team to initiate a robotic-assisted renal transplantation program, in which the recipient undergoes placement of the transplant kidney robotically. The Department of urology at Henry Ford Hospital is a very diverse department with fellowship trained staff in all subspecialty of urology, including endourology and stone disease, male infertility and sexual medicine, female pelvic medicine and reconstructive urology, pediatric urology, reconstructive urology and gender affirmation surgery.

In our department, we continue to recruit exceptional urologists around the country. Many of our former residents have become directors of robotic urological surgery programs immediately upon completion of the Henry Ford urology residency. Numerous residents have completed fellowship programs and are leaders in the field of urology, while some have entered private practice. View a full list of our program alumni.
