Abstract

The coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), has rapidly been spreading worldwide and Italy has been hit hard, forced the Italian Healthcare System to change and adapt to these extreme conditions. The Urology Department daily activities were drastically reduced and limited only to non-deferrable procedures and the entire organogram were reorganized following a rigorous flow-chart. It’s evident that this unprecedent scenario is having an impact on residents training program, considering that it is very difficult to predict the duration of emergency. The urology residents do not have the opportunity to carry out clinical activities nor to be tutored, as the senior physicians are engaged in the emergency’s management.
