Research and Education


HackensackUMC Urology patients benefit from the latest clinical trials delivered by expert physicians across a range of specialty areas. Our 5-story, 55,000-square-foot David and Alice Jurist Institute for Research is dedicated to ongoing research activities.

Each year clinical research within HackensackUMC’s Department of Urology leads to numerous reports in peer-reviewed publications as well as presentations at prestigious medical and surgical convocations. Our residents often participate as co-authors and co-presenters for these endeavors. To-date we have presented and published more than 500 original abstracts and manuscripts.
