Ascension Providence Hospital Podiatric Medicine and Surgery Residency

First Year Position: Three
Total Positions: Nine

The three year Podiatric Residency was granted full approval by the Council on Podiatric Medical Education of the American Podiatric Medical Association in 2004. Residents are selected on the basis of their previous achievements in Podiatry College, letters of recommendation, college evaluations, test scores, GPA and a personal interview held annually during the CRIP weekend.


Graduates of the program receive a comprehensive general medical and surgical experience which includes experience in Anesthesiology, Behavioral Sciences, Emergency Medicine, Radiology, Family Medicine, General Surgery, Vascular, Internal Medicine, Interventional Cardiology, Neurology, Plastic Surgery, Pathology, Rheumatology, Endocrinology, Infectious Disease, Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation and Podiatry Office rotations.


Residents participate in monthly Research and Journal Club, M & M, Grand Rounds, weekly lectures, workshops and radiology rounds, and online ACFAS and PRESENT lecture series. We have a state of the art simulation lab, cadaver wet lab and animal research lab. Residents will experience all foot and ankle reconstructive surgery including complicated rearfoot reconstruction, and charcot trauma experience. Residents in our program exceed the number of surgical cases required to graduate. Our program offers great opportunities in research and publishing, and graduates are fully prepared for the Board Qualification Examinations.


An excellent opportunity for an Externship program of one month duration is available to senior students enrolled in an accredited College of Podiatric Medicine.
