Dr. Arthur Tarantino, a urologist with Hartford HealthCare’s Tallwood Urology & Kidney Institute at Hartford Hospital, was recently named to an eight-year term on the board of directors of the national American Urological Association.

Founded in 1902, the AUA is the nation’s premiere professional urological organization, promoting the highest standards of clinical care through education, research and the formulation of healthcare policy.

“This is a tremendous achievement for Dr. Tarantino, who is the first Hartford HealthCare urologist and only the second from Connecticut ever named to the AUA board,” said Dr. Steven Shichman, medical director of Tallwood Urology & Kidney Institute. “The appointment speaks to Dr. Tarantino’s track record in organized medicine as a leader at Hartford Hospital and at the local, regional, state and national levels, as well has his commitment to the advanced delivery of care for all our patients”

Dr. Tarantino – who sees patients in Hartford, at Tallwood Men’s Health in Farmington, and in Glastonbury – has been a practicing urologist in Hartford since 1988. He was an active participant in systemwide efforts to implement an electronic medical record and has served as vice president and then chief of staff at Hartford Hospital. He has served on the national board and as president of the American Association of Clinical Urologists and on the board and chairman of the UROPAC, the original federal political action committee representing urology. In addition, he served as state representative, treasurer, president and immediate past president of the New England Section of the AUA.

Locally, Dr. Tarantino is legislative chair of the Connecticut State Urology Society and the urology representative to the Connecticut Contractor Advisory Committee. He earned his medical degree from Georgetown University School of Medicine.
