Urology's 90-Years of Trainee Education Campaign

A personal campaign sponsored by Department of Urology

April 1, 2022


This is an especially exciting time in The Department of Urology at the University of Minnesota. We are celebrating the 90th anniversary of the founding of our department in 1932.  Over the years, our accomplishments have been many but perhaps none more important than our 90 year tradition of training outstanding clinicians and the brightest leaders in the field of urology. We are excited about continuing our legacy of discovery and exceptional training for physicians and physician-scientists.

This celebratory season is also a time of reflection and offering expressions of gratitude. During your time in the Department of Urology at the University of Minnesota you were part of our long-standing tradition of excellence in education. I hope you will help us fulfill our commitment to training the next generation of Urologists with a gift this year. They truly are our future.

We can’t do it without you. Your gift opens up new programming opportunities to improve the educational and research experiences here at the University of Minnesota for residents & fellows.

Your gift to the Urology Research, Support, and Education Fund supports:

  • Resident and fellow well-being and resilience initiatives
  • Scholarships to attend conferences & national meetings
  • Curricular innovation for the residency program
  • Startup funding for research projects
  • And much more!


Thank you for your continued support and for helping us celebrate this significant milestone and secure the future for the next 90 years!

On behalf of all who will benefit from your generosity, thank you.
