Podiatric Medicine and Surgery Residency Program

Program Overview 

Rochester General Hospital, located in Rochester NY, has received provisional approval for a 36 month Podiatric Medicine and Surgery Residency Program that emphasizes on all aspects of podiatric care from basic clinical experiences to advanced reconstructive procedures. This will be a new program for the 2017-2018 academic year, with PMSR/RRA certification. Our program emphasizes all aspects of podiatric care from basic clinical experiences to advanced reconstructive procedures.

Residents have opportunities to learn from expert medical and surgical specialists from multiple health care facilities within Rochester Regional Health, allowing for a multidisciplinary approach to education and medicine. Rotations include internal medicine, emergency medicine, anesthesiology, wound care, radiology, endocrinology, infectious disease, behavioral sciences, pathology and laboratory medicine. Extensive training in podiatric medicine and surgery is complimented by rotations in orthopaedic surgery, vascular surgery, general surgery and plastic surgery.

Rochester General Hospital podiatric residency program stresses a hands-on and interactive approach to teaching. Students will learn by doing, not watching. Along with a truly hands-on experience, students will take place in monthly journal clubs, case discussions, resident presentations and numerous research opportunities.
