Podiatric Medicine & Surgery Residency
The NYU Langone Health Podiatric Medicine and Surgery Program is accredited by the Council on Podiatric Medical Education (CPME) for three incoming residents, allowing for a total of nine residents by 2021, to receive training in both Podiatric Medicine and Surgery and Reconstruction of the Rearfoot and Ankle (PMSR/RRA).
Our three-year residency program, based at NYU Langone Hospital—Brooklyn, equips you with the knowledge and confidence to approach all varieties of podiatric pathologies. Residents receive exceptional surgical training alongside board-certified podiatric surgeons and foot and ankle orthopedists. Through this program, you are trained to manage complex interdisciplinary foot and ankle pathologies and podiatric trauma, and become well-versed in both inpatient and outpatient medical care.
Current residents rotate through NYU Langone Hospital—Brooklyn, NYU Langone’s Tisch Hospital and Kimmel Pavilion, and NYU Langone Orthopedic Hospital for inpatient management and care. Residents also cover cases at several outpatient surgical centers and gain experience at outpatient private office rotations. Residents trained at our program leave with the tools, proficiency, and confidence to provide their future communities with top-level medical care.
Podiatric Medicine and Surgery Residency Training Experience
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 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, resident- and faculty-run academic conferences, and surgical skills labs. We strive to provide each resident with the requisite diagnostic and surgical skills to manage and treat patients in the following fields:
- diabetic foot infections
- limb salvage
- foot and ankle trauma
- vascular insufficiencies
- acute and chronic wound care
- skin and nail pathology
- clinical biomechanics and orthotics
- elective and/or reconstructive foot and ankle surgery
Residents in our program gain exposure to and treat a diverse range of pathologies, and benefit from the resources of our excellent facilities. They cover surgical cases at three separate hospitals and several surgical centers, including the Level 1 Trauma Center where the program is based. At the conclusion of the three-year residency program, graduates are prepared to contribute to the medical community on an expert and elite level.
