Podiatric Medicine & Surgical Residency
The Podiatric Medicine & Surgical Residency (PMSR) Program is a (CPME) accredited 3 year residency. We are currently approved to accept two new residents per academic year. The program is designed to give the residents complete exposure to patient needs. Residents will care for patients in hospital, outpatient clinics or multidisciplinary settings. As Boston Medical Center is the largest Health Safety net hospital in the state, the Podiatric Residency program places great emphasis on limb salvage in addition to a strong focus on patient education. Residents in our program exceed the number of surgical cases required to graduate, are part of a union, train as equals alongside allopathic colleagues, and participate in a weekly Scientific American course.
Rounds are conducted daily. Didactics include weekly complications conferences, journal club, M&M and Grand Rounds.
The first year consists of rotations similar to a surgical internship to provide the new resident with knowledge and skills to care for the surgical and hospitalized patients. Rotations include Family Medicine, Endocrinology, Emergency Medicine, Infectious disease, Radiology, General Surgery, Vascular Surgery, Orthopedic Surgery, Radiology, Anesthesiology and Podiatric Surgery. All rotations are at Boston Medical Center.
The second year focuses on podiatry as a whole with an introduction to research. The second year resident partakes in surgical procedures, whether elective, emergent, or in clinic. The resident will have his/her own clinic session under attending’s supervision. They have several rotations added to further enhance their medical and surgical knowledge. Rotations in the second year include Behavioral Sciences, Pathology, Dermatology.
Third year resident will be in surgery and clinic full time, including his/her own clinic. The resident will also have rotations in Trauma and Plastic Surgery. There is great opportunity for research and publishing during the third year.
