Residencies

All podiatric medical school graduates complete a standard three-year surgical residency program. The podiatric medicine and surgery residency is a resource-based, competency-driven, assessment-validated program that consists of three years of postgraduate training in inpatient and outpatient medical and surgical management. The sponsoring institution provides training resources that facilitate the residents' sequential and progressive achievement of specific competencies.

Podiatric Medicine and Surgery Residency (PMSR)

A PMSR resident is trained in the breadth of podiatric healthcare. Completion of the residency leads to the following certification pathways — the American Board Podiatric Medicine (ABPM) and foot surgery of the American Board of Foot and Ankle Surgery (ABFAS).

 

Podiatric Medicine and Surgery Residency with a credential in Reconstructive Rearfoot/Ankle Surgery (PMSR/RRA).  

In addition to the standard Podiatric Medicine and Surgery Residency, the added credential in Reconstructive Rearfoot/Ankle Surgery (PMSR/RRA) is available with some residencies. These residencies can provide a sufficient volume and diversity in reconstructive rearfoot and ankle procedures and are approved grant an added credential in RRA. Completion of a Podiatric Medicine and Surgery Residency with the added credential leads to the RRA certification pathway of ABFAS.
