We characterize infertility training in urology residency programs.
A pilot survey was sent to randomly selected urological training programs.
The modified final survey was sent to 126 approved urological residencies in North America.
Of the 126 surveys 110 (87%) were returned.
Among the programs 38% expressed interest in recruiting a faculty member with expertise in infertility, 32% indicated an inadequate number of patients available to train residents and 56% indicated that their residents were least competent in the treatment of infertile patients compared to the other urological subspecialty disciplines.
This survey confirms the underemphasis of infertility in urological training programs and the need to enhance this training.
