This program begins with residents working in general surgery during their first year of training until moving to intensive training in podiatric medicine and surgery. All first-year residents will rotate in various surgical specialties including burn, neurosurgery, trauma, anesthesiology, plastic surgery, vascular surgery and surgical intensive care. The second- and third-year podiatry residents rotate on the podiatry service. Residents are also responsible for all emergency room and inpatient consultations.
