In brief: Medicine vs Surgery

The differences may be subtle outside of professional circles, but essentially urology is a surgical field that deals with the urinary tract: kidneys, ureter, bladder, prostate, and genitals.
By contrast, nephrology is a specialty of internal medicine, where disorders of the kidney are treated in non-surgical ways (dialysis).

In brief: Kidneys vs drainage

Nephrologists deal with disorders of the kidney, the organ that makes urine.
Urologists are surgeons who deal with the system that takes urine from the kidney to the outside: ureters, bladder, and urethra. Urologists may also treat problems with the male reproductive tract. Urological problems may damage the kidneys, making treatment from both doctors necesssary.
