Training Hospitals

The Brigham and Women’s Hospital/Harvard Medical School Program in Urology rotates its residents through several hospitals in the Boston area. These include: 

  • The Brigham and Women's Hospital (BWH). BWH is well-established as one of the finest teaching hospitals in the world. The BWH is optimized for major, resource-intensive, specialized urologic care and routinely attracts patients from all over the United States as well as neighboring countries. 

  • The Brigham and Women’s Faulkner Hospital (BWFH). BWFH is highly regarded as one of Boston's most important community teaching hospitals. Its postgraduate medical education is rooted in a long and innovative tradition. The hospital is a high-volume robotic and endoscopic center. 

  • The Boston Children's Hospital (BCH). BCH has a well-established urology service that has consistently been ranked as the best pediatric urology program in the country. The service has a worldwide reputation for excellence in the treatment of both complex and common pediatric urological problems. 

  • The VA Boston Healthcare System facilities in West Roxbury and Jamaica Plain (VAMC). Here, residents offer medical care and services to America’s military veterans and cultivate the core skills necessary to become independent practitioners. 


All four hospitals have active emergency rooms. BWH is a designated Level 1 trauma center.
