Department of Urology
Jefferson Medical College is the fifth oldest medical school in the United States and has more living graduates than any other medical school in the United States. A 125-bed hospital, one of the first in the nation affiliated with a medical school, opened in 1877. The Department of Urology is one of the oldest in the United States and was established 1904, with 2004 marking our Centennial year. Jefferson has a long rich history in urology and we house the “Leonard Frank Jefferson Museum of Urology" located in our academic office at 1025 Walnut Street.
The Inaugural Harold Honickman Lecture in Prostate Health
will be held at 4 p.m. on Thursday, April 3, 2014, in the
Dorrance H. Hamilton Building's Connelly Auditorium on the Jefferson campus.
The Honickman lectureship was established by a generous gift from
D. Walter Cohen, DDS, and Claire Reichlin in honor of Jefferson trustee Harold Honickman.
Peter T. Scardino, MD, Chairman of the Department of Surgery,
Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, will present
"The Changing Role of Surgery in the Treatment of Prostate Cancer."
A reception will immediately follow the lecture.
For information on our department's clinical aspects, please see our Clinical Website, as well as the Prostate Diagnostic Center, the Genitourinary Multidisciplinary Center, and the Prostate Cancer Working Group.
We are very proud of our Department. I invite you to learn more by exploring our academic and clinical web sites further.
