Podiatric Medicine & Surgical Residency Program

The Podiatric Residency Program at NYU Langone Hospital—Brooklyn is one of the most challenging and rewarding podiatric educational experiences available, designed to produce broadly trained podiatric physicians for the 21st century. Well integrated into its teaching hospital, the program has an extensive research department, library with full Internet access, and a staff of clinicians with years of experience.

The goal of the Podiatric Residency Program is to provide residents with a superior medical and surgical background that prepares them for private practice. We accomplish this through a varied curriculum that includes weekly didactic lectures, block rotations, and a journal club. 

We strive to provide each resident with excellent diagnostic skills, exposure to all types of trauma, and the ability to manage a spectrum of podiatric medical problems that include the following:

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

As a resident in our program, you are exposed to and treat a diverse spectrum of pathologies and benefit from the resources of our excellent facilities, which include an extremely busy podiatric clinic, an ambulatory surgical site, and a Level 1 Trauma Center.
