About Dr. Oates
I'm a Professor of Urology at Boston University School of Medicine and Vice-Chairman of the Department of Urology. I've been the Fellowship Program Director for the past eight years and ran the Urology Residency program for fourteen years. I collaborate with colleagues across the globe on numerous research projects and helm a busy clinical practice here at Boston Medical Center (BMC).
Born and bred in Boston, I attended medical school at Boston University School of Medicine and stayed for my Urology residency. After finishing my residency, I was fortunate to work with Dr. Larry Lipshultz in 1988 at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston for one of the first clinical fellowships in Male Reproductive Medicine. I returned to Boston after my fellowship concluded and have been an Attending Surgeon in the Department of Urology at BMC ever since.
