Podiatric Surgery Residency

The Podiatric Medicine and Surgery Residency Program is designed to give residents exposure to the full breadth of patients’ needs, with residents caring for patients in the hospital, outpatient clinics, and multidisciplinary settings. This three-year program, accredited by the Council on Podiatric Medical Education, places significant emphasis on limb salvage as well as patient education. Residents in our program exceed the number of surgical cases required to graduate, are members of a union, and train as equals alongside allopathic colleagues. Research is an important part of the program, and residents are expected to complete a research project leading to a publication during the course of their training. Two new residents are matched each academic year.

Podiatry surgery research is presented during the annual Department of Surgery Grasberger Research Day.
