A fellowship trained, board-certified physician (American Board of Urology), he has received many honors and awards for his work and is an active member and leader in professional associations worldwide. His recent lectures, publications and book titles can be found in his curriculum vitae.
Dr. Turek graduated from Yale College with highest honors (summa cum laude), Phi Beta Kappa, and attended medical school at Stanford University.
Dr. Paul Turek has been recognized as one of America’s Best Doctors by seven accrediting organizations (US News and World Report Top Doctors, Marquis Who’s Who, Best Doctors, PatientsChoice.org, Top MD-Consumer’s Checkbook, SuperDoctors and Castle-Connolly Top Doctors). Dr. Turek graduated from Yale College with highest honors (summa cum laude), Phi Beta Kappa, and then attended medical school at Stanford University, where he also took top research honors. He completed his residency in urology at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania, the nation’s first medical school, founded by Benjamin Franklin.
After completing a fellowship in male reproductive medicine and microsurgery at Baylor College of Medicine, he was recruited to the faculty of the University of California San Francisco (UCSF), one of the nation’s top ten hospitals. While at UCSF, Dr. Turek served with distinction, performing incisive and widely praised research, publishing hundreds of papers and lecturing around the world. In time, he was awarded membership in the prestigious Academy of Medical Educators and became a full professor, with an Endowed Chair in Urology.
Yet despite the international acclaim and the chance to mentor the next generation of physicians, Dr. Turek realized that what he most enjoyed was being a physician and caring for patients with reproductive health problems. As Dr. Turek explains, “I’ve always believed in scientific research because it generates knowledge, but what matters most to me is how that translates into good, old-fashioned wisdom for patient care.” That simple but deeply felt insight gave birth to The Turek Clinics and his award-winning blog, Turek On Men’s Health.
