Abstract

There is an increasing trend in medicine toward subspecialization, and even further subspecialization of the subspecialty. When I started residency training, most urologists were generalists and practiced all areas of urology, including men and women, adults and children, as well as benign and malignant diseases.

Today the field is quite different; there is subspecialty board certification in pediatric urology.
