Podiatric Surgical Residency

About the Program

Our Podiatric Surgical Residency Training Program is designed to provide an opportunity for supervised advanced clinical experience in the recognition and management of foot and ankle pathology. The resident will learn to recognize lower extremity manifestations of the various systemic, cutaneous and functional diseases together with the concept of secondary prevention of chronic diseases as they relate to the foot and ankle.

Emphasize the relationship of the basic sciences to clinical practice by affording the opportunities to study and utilize the complete physical record of the patient before, during, and after podiatric treatment.
Familiarize the podiatric resident with hospital procedure, as well as interactions with other divisions of healthcare services.
To achieve these purposes, experience and training in all of the major areas for the treatment of podiatric conditions have been approved through educational, clinical, research and public health programs. Education will be provided through scheduled lectures, seminars and conferences devoted to the integration of the basic sciences with the clinical treatment of patients.
The Residency Program will be guided by recommendations of the Council on Education of the American Podiatric Medical Association and its associated Councils and Committees.
