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 Harold Honickman Lecture in Prostate Health will be held at 4 P.M. on Monday, April 18, 2016 in the Dorrance H. Hamilton Building's Connelly Auditorium.

The Honickman lectureship was established by a generous gift from D. walter Cohen, DDS, and Claire Reichlinin honnor of Jefferson trustee Harold Honickman.

Patrick C. Walsh M.D. University Distinguished Service Professor, James Buchanan Brady Urological Institute, Johns Hopkins Hospital will present: 

"Prostate Cancer - where have we been, where are we, and where are we going?"

A reception will immediately follow the lecture.
