Dr. Morales completed his undergraduate training at the Universidad Javeriana in Columbia, his surgical training in Washington, D.C. and Boston, Massachusetts and his urological training at Queen's University. He has been with the Department of Urology since 1972 and was promoted to full Professor in 1982.
Dr. Morales stepped down as the Head of Urology in 1997 after 15 dedicated and challenging years in that position. He has, over the years, cultivated much external funding support for the department and carries on numerous clinical drug trials and research projects, on an ongoing basis; primarily in the areas of sexual dysfunction and oncology.
He is constantly sought out to be a visiting lecturer all over the world, and also participates in local and international CME events. Dr. Morales has over 260 papers published. His 1976 paper on the use of BCG for the prophylaxis and treatment of superficial bladder cancer has been recognized as one of the most important papers published in the last 100 years on bladder cancer by the Journal of Urology. He sits on several editorial boards, including "The International Journal of Impotence Research" and as an External Reviewer for the "Journal of Urology".
He officially retired in 2004, but continues as founding Director of the Centre of Applied Urological Research, for the Department of Urology, a facility that he spearheaded and saw through from concept to reality when it opened in 2005 at 62 Barrie St., Kingston.
