Arnaldo Trabucco: Becoming a Urologist

Arnaldo Trabucco is a urologic surgeon with over twenty-five years of experience who is currently living in Italy. Trabucco is at the forefront of his field, and has been involved in many important technological advances in urological treatment. Urology, which is the study and treatment of the urinary tract and male reproductive system, is a very complex medical practice that requires time and dedication to be successful at.
Urology requires years of higher education before one can start practicing professionally. The first step is to get an undergraduate degree, usually in a scientific major such as biology or chemistry. After that, a medical degree is required. At this point, the student will have put in roughly eight years of study. Upon graduation from medical school, aspiring urologists must complete a residency. 

Residency is where aspiring doctors get hands-on training in treating complex issues, and engage in important research as well. Trabucco was involved with several different important research projects throughout his residency. Upon completion of the residency, new doctors must pass a board certification (in Trabucco’s case, from the American Board of Urology) before they are allowed to practice. The certification is rigorous, and includes a 300-question multiple choice exam, as well as an oral exam. The candidate must work for 16 months after taking the written exam before they can take the oral exam and become fully board-certified. Arnaldo Trabucco completed two years of general surgical residency at hospitals in Brooklyn, New York, and Waterbury, Connecticut, before becoming a urologic resident at the University of Nebraska Medical Center.
