Research activity

  • Residents and faculty meet two times a month to review the latest clinical and basic science research articles, gain insight into ongoing research activities within the Department, and look for answers to clinical questions.
  • Each resident has a theme for their clinical research work and reports their results four times a year. Several times a year, residents review interesting cases from their consultation services to their peers. Complex medical cases are presented with a pathology review.

Examples of topics:
  • Comparative evaluation of the effectiveness of the use of a-blockers in stone-expelling therapy of n / 3 ureter cakes in obese men
  • Comparative evaluation of the effectiveness of embolization of prostatic arteries and transurethral resection in elderly patients with prostatic hyperplasia

Training base

Clinical practice takes place at several clinics: Under the guidance of experienced Novosibirsk specialists, residents have an opportunity to master all methods of diagnosis and surgical treatment (both open and laparoscopic) for many urological diseases, become acquainted with guidelines for providing planned outpatient care (including pediatric urology and oncourology), conduct research work, and participate in seminars and monthly urology schools.
The culmination of the theoretical and practical modules is clinical research work. The resident analyzes the clinical experience gained and interprets it from the standpoint of a practicing physician.
