Podiatric Medicine Residency

Podiatric Medicine and Surgery Residency Program

The Podiatric Medicine and Surgery Residency Program prepares physician to provide palliative and surgical care for illnesses relating to the foot and ankle.

Based in a community hospital, the program provides training in a variety of inpatient and outpatient areas. Not only do residents care for patients in the hospital setting, they also have the advantage of working at local surgery centers and Podiatrists’ offices.

About the Program

The Podiatry Residency Program welcomed its first resident in 1989. The program is approved by the Council on Podiatric Medical Education (CPME). The program is currently approved as a PMS-36 with the added Credential for Reconstructive Rearfoot / Ankle Surgery.

For the first year of the three-year program, much of the training is hospital based. The rotation schedules allow for surgery in the morning and podiatric or off-service rotations in the afternoon. Residents spend time in private podiatry practices where patient care management and office management experience is obtained. Residents are exposed to many podiatric and MD teaching faculty to draw on a wide variety of clinical and surgical experiences.
