Podiatric Surgical Residency PMSR RRA

Graduate Medical Education

St. Rita's Medical Center Podiatric Medicine and Surgery Residency with Reconstructive Rear Foot / Ankle Surgery Program is accredited by the Council on Podiatric Medical Education and provides the recent graduate with the opportunity to gain experience in the problems of a general medicine, podiatric medicine, foot and ankle surgery, and to study advanced and related sciences essential for the practice of podiatric medicine.

Since podiatric medicine may be defined as "That specialty of medicine and surgery which is concerned with the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of disease and disorders which affect the human foot and its contiguous lower extremity structures", it is recognized that the podiatric resident will be one who specializes in the lower extremity. However, it is the goal of the podiatric surgical residency training program at St. Rita’s Medical Center to strive to produce a well rounded foot and ankle podiatric physician and surgeon who is well appreciative of the total patient's medical well being.
