Introduced in 2023, the Health Equity Fellowship is designed to train early career urologists who are passionate about humanitarian work within the U.S. so that they can be effective in engaging with diverse communities, especially those most marginalized. The two-year fellowship consists of one year of didactic education in partnership with the Center for Urban Bioethics at the Lewis Katz School of Medicine at Temple University. At the end of year one, the fellow will submit a capstone project which will be supported in year two by a grant and ongoing mentoring.
