Urology is defined as the medical-surgical specialty that includes the study, diagnosis and treatment of medical conditions of the urinary system. It is well specified by the National Commission of Specialties that we must know the medical pathology that concerns us. However, on occasions, resident training focuses on the surgical field and oncological pathology, which, although one of the main pillars of the specialty, is usually to the detriment of training in medical and functional pathology. We conducted a survey of residents in the fourth year of Urology in Spain, where we asked about the quality of training in Andrology and Functional Urology...

PURPOSE: Palliative care improves symptom burden, distress, patient and family satisfaction, and survival for patients with cancer. Oncology professional societies endorse the integration of palliative care into routine care for patients with advanced cancers. Despite this, cultural differences between medical subspecialties and the limited number of clinicians trained in palliative care lower the adoption of integrated care models. We assessed oncologists' and palliative care clinicians' perceptions about integrating oncology and palliative care using a nurse delivering palliative care to patients newly diagnosed with lung cancer...

Amy E Brown
This essay evolved from observations that pediatric resident physicians' experiences with patient deaths might influence their career paths after completing residency training. The author's journey as a physician led her to wonder whether young pediatricians who gravitated toward careers in primary care had qualitatively different experiences with death and dying during their medical training compared to those who chose fields in which they were more likely to confront death and dying on a regular basis, such as pediatric critical care, neonatology, or pediatric oncology...
