The Ohio State University is accredited by the Council on Podiatric Medical Education to offer a residency program in Podiatric Medicine and Surgery Residency/Reconstructive Rearfoot/Ankle. The program is three years in length. We are accredited to accept two residents each year, for a total of six residents.
The Ohio State University Department of Orthopaedics and Division of Foot and Ankle Surgery will educate residents, who, upon completion of the three years of training should exhibit the knowledge and psychomotor skill concerning foot and ankle surgery equal to an orthopaedic surgeon fellowship trained in foot and ankle surgery. The goal of the PGY1 year is to prepare the resident for two years of intensive training in podiatric surgery.
Rotations during the first year include endocrinology, rheumatology, pathology, medical imaging, trauma, anesthesia, vascular surgery, family medicine, and podiatric medicine. All rotations are under the guidance of The Ohio State University faculty and will include a large volume of clinical work in each specialty. There will be limited surgical exposure during the PGY-1 year.
The PGY-2 year is spent exclusively with podiatric faculty at The Ohio State University. A large exposure to the clinical and surgical setting will provide an environment and knowledge base to stimulate academic and research pursuits. The PGY-3 year is spent rotating between podiatric and orthopaedic surgeons specializing in foot and ankle. The goal is to maximize knowledge and perfect psychomotor skills.
