Male Genitourinary Reconstruction and Trauma Fellowship

The program began in 1989 under the direction of Dr. Jack W. McAninch. In 2011, Dr. Benjamin N. Breyer joined the UCSF faculty and became fellowship director in 2013. The purpose of this program is to train individuals for a future academic career in male reconstructive and trauma related urology.  The goals are to provide trainees with extensive surgical experience in reconstructive urology, including adult urethral and genital reconstruction, urinary diversion and fistula repairs, genital cancer and penile preservation procedures, adult pelvic and urethral reconstruction, Peyronie’s disease, erectile dysfunction and the diagnosis and management of male urinary incontinence.  A mentored, graduated experience in trauma diagnosis and management is focused at Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital (ZSFG). This provides the opportunity to work as a member of a Trauma Team providing care for acute trauma to the urinary and genital system. 

The research experience is based on outcomes research utilizing an extensive trauma and reconstructive database developed over the past 30 years.  Fellows will also use large publicly available data sets to answer key research questions in male genitourinary reconstruction and trauma related urology. Fellows are supervised and guided through the development of research projects, which include protocol preparation and development, statistical analysis, data collection techniques, data interpretation, manuscript preparation, etc.  It is expected that each trainee will complete and publish numerous manuscripts during fellowship.

Learning how to be a surgeon educator and future role model is one of the major goals of this program.
