What is a Urologist?

A Urologist is a physician who has completed a certified residency training program. A board certified Urologist has successfully completed oral and written exams conducted by the American Board of Urology. Urologists must repeat certification exams every 10 years. Urologists have specialized knowledge and skill with regard to problems of the male and female urinary tract and the male reproductive organs. Although urology is classified as surgical subspecialty, the urologist requires knowledge of internal medicine, gynecology, and other specialties.
