    Why did you choose to specialize in urology?

      How to Answer

      The interviewer wants to get to know you as a person and what interests you. If something happened in your life that led you to a medical career, this is a good time to share that experience.

      Darby's Answer

      "The quick answer is that it is the only rotation I really enjoyed during third year. I had good experiences and good teachers on every other rotation too, but urology just felt right, in large part because of the urologists I met."

      Darby's Answer

      "Urologists have a reputation as easy going and happy people. We also have a pretty well-developed sense of humor, which is helpful when addressing sensitive issues like sexual function and urination."

      Darby's Answer

      "Urology offers a nice variety of practice options; medical and surgical, young and old, male and female. We can do big oncological cases or small office procedures; this permits a lot of flexibility over the course of a career."

      "I love it. It’s a combination of medicine and surgery."

      Marcie's Answer

      Why do you love it, though? What about it is unique compared to other medical fields? Do you enjoy helping patients overcome their medical problems? Be passionate, sincere, and honest in your reply.

      "I had a special interest in urology since the beginning. When I was studying for school or exam I would prefer to do urology first; maybe I felt comfortable with knowledge and subject."

      Rachelle's Answer

      Desiring to do your urology work first is an excellent indicator that it's your favorite! This is a good start, for sure. Next, try adding in a bit of information on what you enjoy the most about this area of specialization.
