The decline of urological education in United States medical schools.
In 1956,99% of all medical schools required a clinical rotation through urology during year 3 or 4. By 1978 this percentage had decreased to 48% and currently it is only 38%. In addition, an estimated 10 to 15% of medical school graduates have never been exposed to urology (no lectures and no clinical rotation).
Urological diseases continue to comprise a significant percentage of problems encountered by primary care physicians.
The Education Council of the American Urological Association has adopted urological education objectives that should be incorporated into the curriculum of every medical school.
