Work Environment

Like other physicians and surgeons, urologists typically work in small private offices or clinics with a staff of nurses and administrative support employees. When performing surgery, urologists work in well-lighted, sterile environments. Most work long, irregular hours. Those who work in a group setting, such as in a health care organization or group practice, may have less work stress than in a solo practice because they can coordinate patient care with other practitioners. Those who run their own independent practice have responsibilities that extend beyond medical practice, such as overseeing the business management and operations.
