About Us


On behalf of our faculty, residents, and staff, I am pleased to welcome you to the Department of Urology at Queen’s University.

Our mission is to deliver the highest standards in clinical urological care to our patients through a combination of exceptional teamwork, unsurpassed operational efficiency, and cutting-edge surgical technology.   We are proud to train outstanding future leaders in urology, and to generate innovative and world-class research on the diagnosis, causes, prevention and treatment of urological conditions. All of this occurs in a unique environment that is collegial and supportive, yet continuously strives to facilitate excellence.

There are eight academic urologists primarily affiliated with the Department, with many clinical and research collaborators as cross-appointed faculty. All of our members have active clinical practices and extensive involvement in urological research and education. Research foci include urological oncology, inflammatory disease of the genito-urinary tract, voiding dysfunction and educational research. There is an active clinical research program based at the Centre for Applied Urological Research.

We have a fully accredited residency program and all department members participate in the undergraduate and postgraduate medical education programs at Queen’s. The clinical program is based at Kingston General Hospital and Hotel Dieu Hospital and provides secondary referral services for Kingston, Frontenac, Lennox and Addington and Prince Edward County as well as tertiary referral services for Southeastern Ontario.

I encourage you to learn more about our Department, and welcome any inquiries of our team.
