What career or financial advice would you give to current urology residents? We posed this question to urologists who filled out our Urologist Compensation Survey and compiled 50 of the responses below. You will notice that some of the advice is repetitive, which simply means it was given multiple times. That might be the advice to pay most attention to!
The topic of contracts and compensation comes up a lot. There are various strategies around compensation, but many of them revolve around Relative Value Units or RVUs. You have no doubt heard about RVUs in some context. But what are they and do they matter? Here I break down how RVUs are calculated and how they impact your paycheck.
We have built an anonymous urologist compensation survey and database that will be a free resource for urologists, residents, and fellows. Our goal is to get to 1000 responses by July 1, 2022. We realize this is an enormous goal, but we believe it’s a worthy cause and hope you will, too. We will need your help to get the word out.
Congratulations to all the medical students who matched into Urology this week!
