Podiatric Medicine & Surgery Residency

The Department of Orthopedic Surgery’s podiatric medicine and surgery residency program, based at NYU Langone Hospital—Brooklyn, is one of the most challenging and rewarding postgraduate experiences available in the field. The purpose of our three-year residency program is to train podiatric surgeons to be competent and proficient in all aspects of foot and ankle pathology. Our program is integrated into a large academic institution with an extensive research department and physician–educators with years of experience.

Our residency program prepares physicians for both hospital- and office-based practice through weekly didactics, off-service rotations, academic conferences, and surgical skills labs.

We strive to provide each resident with excellent diagnostic skills, exposure to all types of trauma cases, and the ability to manage a wide range of podiatric medical conditions that includes the following:

  • diabetes
  • podiatric traumas
  • reconstructive foot surgery
  • vascular insufficiencies
  • wound care

As a resident in our program, you gain exposure to and treat a diverse range of pathologies and benefit from the resources of our excellent facilities. You cover surgical cases at three separate hospitals and two surgical centers, including the Level 1 Trauma Center where our program is based.
