Podiatric Surgery Residency: Curriculum
Diverse Clinical Experience in Collaborative Setting
About Our Curriculum
Podiatric Medicine and Surgery residents take an active role in patient care from day one, working side-by-side with experienced professionals in a collaborative environment. Our curriculum emphasizes the latest procedures and technology, including training in our advanced Interdisciplinary Simulation and Education Center where residents prepare for real-life surgical situations and leadership roles.
With fourteen graduate medical education programs at HCMC, our residents work with a diverse team of resident physicians and surgeons, medical students, and faculty. During rotations, Podiatric Medicine and Surgery residents embed on each service. Rotations occur at HCMC and three affiliated healthcare systems within the Twin Cities.
Clinical and quality improvement research is an important part of our program. All residents must undertake a publishable research project of their choice prior to graduation. Our full-time education director provides one-on-one guidance to each resident. The project spans all three years of residency, and culminates with a poster presentation at the American College of Foot and Ankle Surgeons annual scientific meeting.
