Department of Urology Visiting Professorship

The Department of Urology Visiting Professorship invites prominent physicians, scientists and thought leaders in the fields of urology to deliver a guest lecture and engage in informal round-table discussions with peers at Virginia Mason. The visiting professorship aims to foster communication across national and international lines to stimulate innovation, improve practice, and inspire novel clinical, research, and quality initiatives in urology. Its goal is to bring exceptional senior scholars who can contribute to and enrich the community's research, education, quality and innovation endeavors.

While on site, visiting professors meet with members of the urology team for the purpose of discussion and education. They do not have direct patient contact or provide clinical care of any kind. A Virginia Mason provider sponsors every visiting professor and is responsible for directing the professor’s lecture content and arranging round-table participation of mutual interest to the professor and the team. The sponsor serves as the visiting professor’s main contact point during the day of the lectureship.

The Department of Urology is pleased to welcome Dr. Stuart Reynolds as Visiting Professor on Friday Oct. 27, 2023.

Dr. Reynolds is an expert in functional urology and women’s pelvic health, with specialty certification in Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery (FPMRS), and the Director of the Vanderbilt FPMRS Fellowship Program.

As a recognized leader in the field, he serves as Member-at-Large on the Executive Committee of the Society of Urodynamics, Female Pelvic Medicine, and Urogenital Reconstruction (SUFU). 

He received his medical degree from the Pennsylvania State University, Milton S. Hershey College of Medicine.
