Baylor College of Medicine

Fellowship Overview
The fellowship program at Baylor College of Medicine has been in existence since 1982 and, as of July 2020, over 112 fellows have been trained in the fellowship both here and abroad. All applicants must successfully complete an ACGME-approved Urology residency. Interviews are held in Houston, Texas, and take 1½ days, although due to COVID-19 travel restrictions, interviews may be held virtually. The successful applicants will develop clinical expertise in the diagnosis and treatment of male patients with reproductive failure including infertility, erectile dysfunction, and hypogonadism. A focus on penile prosthetics and the diagnosis and treatment of erectile dysfunction is a strong part of the fellowship. Fellows will gain proficiency in microsurgical techniques required to treat the patient with reproductive dysfunction, including vasal or epididymal obstruction and varicocele repair. Decision making in assisted reproductive techniques as it pertains to sperm acquisition procedures such as micro-epididymal sperm aspiration (MESA) and microscopic testicular sperm extraction (TESE) will be addressed. Fellows will attend all outpatient clinics with Dr. Lipshultz and participate in both operating room and clinical procedures.

Research Focus
All fellows are expected to submit abstracts to the American Society of Reproductive Medicine (ASRM), American Urological Association (AUA), and to the Sexual Medicine Society of North America (SMSNA) annual meetings. The majority of the projects are clinical, but basic science options are available. Each fellow is expected to publish at least one clinical paper or chapter during the fellowship.
