Urology Unbound is a non-profit organization dedicated to recruiting, retaining, and promoting Black urologists.
The vision of Urology Unbound is to increase the representation of Black surgeons within the field of urology. Black urologists represent less than 2% of the approximately 13,000 urologists practicing in the United States. Currently, there are less than 280 Black urologists in the U.S., approximately 20% of whom are currently in training. This a large disparity considering the Black population in the U.S. is 13.4% and many urologic diseases disproportionately affect Black patients.
Urology Unbound works in collaboration with academic and community health care systems, medical societies, and industry partners to provide education, research, networking opportunities and mentorship for future and current Black urologists.
Urology Unbound aims to partner with allied urological societies, medical schools, and residencies to enhance the educational environment within urologic training programs, thus making programs more inclusive and supportive for Black medical students and trainees.
Ultimately, our goal is to increase the population of Black urologists who endeavor to dedicate their careers to eliminating urologic health inequities within their communities.
