The Steward St. Elizabeth’s Medical Center Podiatry Surgery Residency Program is accredited by the Council on Podiatric Medical Education. The program is approved for a total of six residents with two resident positions in each year of the three-year program. The residency is designed with a rotational structure with an emphasis on resource based, competency driven, assessment validated training. The resident is provided with a greater responsibility in patient care and decision making as they progress through their training. These experiences coincide with a complementary curriculum of advancing didactic study. The residents and attendings have teaching responsibilities to students, medical staff/house officers and the surrounding communities. Research activity is encouraged and a requirement for program completion.
Affiliations with all of the podiatric medical schools allow fourth-year podiatric medical students to rotate through St. Elizabeth's Medical Center on a monthly basis to augment their clinical curriculum. Externs are actively involved in the clinic, operating room, patient floors, emergency department and all didactic activities.
