Residency Program in Podiatric Medicine & Surgery

The Podiatric Medicine & Surgery Residency Program with Reconstructive Rearfoot and Ankle Surgery prides itself on the pursuit of excellence and educational experience of podiatric residents with other podiatrists and attending surgeons. It is through the hard work of the administration, residents and attending staff that this program has maintained its successful accreditation and support of the Council on Podiatric Medical Education.

Podiatric surgery residents participate fully in the evaluation, care and surgical management of a large volume of patients in the Emergency, Inpatient and Outpatient Departments. Throughout the three years of training, the resident is exposed to a vast array of experiences that include limb salvage procedures, rearfoot and forefoot reconstructive surgeries, and nuclear medicine and its applications to podiatric medicine. Residents rotate on multiple services maintaining a well-balanced curriculum of Internal Medicine, Behavioral Health, Plastic Surgery, Radiology, Anesthesia, General Surgery, Pathology, Emergency Medicine, Dermatology, Wound Care, Infectious Disease, and Orthopedic Surgery. In order to provide maximum diversity during the podiatric surgery rotation, residents participate in a very busy clinic where the resident is exposed to a variety of pathology in preparation for the types of patients they will see as practicing podiatrists.

Didactic activities are held weekly and consist of lectures, Cafe discussions, and Grand Rounds. Cadaver Labs, Journal Clubs, and/or Workshops each occur monthly. Residents frequently combine conferences and labs with other local hospitals for a more well-rounded experience. In addition, web-based Present Courseware lectures are a part of the curriculum and viewed weekly by each resident.
