To apply as a Specialty Fellow, you must be able to meet and check off each of the following member criteria:

To qualify for a subspecialty certificate in pediatric urology, the ABU requires all candidates after 2008 to complete two years of specialty training in pediatric urology.
  • Documentation of certification in general urology by the American Board of Urology or the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada; or 
  • Documentation of subspecialty certificate in pediatric urology by the American Board of Urology.  

Note: individuals who do not have a subspecialty certificate in pediatric urology can become members by satisfying the additional following criteria:

 
  • A minimum of 75% of the applicant's workweek must be spent in the care of children with urologic diseases.  This work can include teaching, research, and administration. 
  • A 12-month surgical case log, signed by a Department/Division Chairperson, listing all cases (both adult and pediatric) in which the applicant acted as either the primary or responsible surgeon. Seventy-five percent of the procedures must have been performed in children and/or teenagers, and be exclusive of such minor surgeries as urethral meatotomy, circumcision, cystoscopy, and urethral dilation;
  • Residence in a single locale for 18 months prior to application.
