The Podiatric Residency is a Counsel of Podiatric Medical Education approved program at Madigan Army Medical Center. This is a three year program and currently has three resident positions. Our program also accepts students from the various Podiatric Medical Schools. The students are designated as core students or externs. The core students spend the majority of their fourth year at Madigan. The externs will spend one month on the podiatry service.

The podiatric medicine and surgery residency is very well organized and has the full support of the Medical Center and staff. The residents are exposed to all major medical services and are included as a team member. The rotations include but are not limited to anesthesiology, radiology, internal medicine, family medicine, pathology, general surgery, orthopedic surgery (general and foot/ankle), limb preservation and emergency medicine. The residents are expected to participate as an integrated member of the respective medical service during these rotations. The residents and core students are evaluated by the medical staff accordingly. The program director, program coordinator and respective service chiefs schedule rotations for the year optimizing the educational experience. Also as part of the educational experience research is highly encouraged. Both former and current residents have presented and or lectured at both the state and national level. Several have published articles in both military medicine and respected journals related to foot and ankle.

The volume and diversity of the surgical training provided in this residency program are excellent. The cooperation of the orthopedic and limb preservation services enhances the overall training experience. The residents work directly with the supervising attending physician at all times. There is a dedicated academic day in which the residents, students and staff discuss pre and post-operative cases. The residents participate in the orthopedic morning report by presenting cases once a week. They also attend grand rounds with the department of surgery.
