Pre-interview dinners will be held at South Beach Bar and Grill at 7:00pm on the prior evenings, Thursday, November 14 and Monday, November 18, respectively. The interview process is intended to provide applicants with sufficient time to meet the faculty and tour the UCSD Medical Center. Applicants are individually rotated through a series of interviews with the program director and full-time faculty members. Applicants will also be given the opportunity to discuss the residency program with our current urology residents. Following the interviews, applicants will be given a bus tour of San Diego.
