Podiatric Residency Program

podiatry residency 1The Podiatric Residency at Good Samaritan Hospital Medical Center is a three-year, CPME and COTH accredited Podiatric Medicine and Surgery Residency Reconstruction Rearfoot and Ankle (PMSR-RRA) program that is affiliated with the New York College of Podiatric Medicine. The residency encompasses all aspects of podiatric medicine and surgery, as well as a full array of academic and didactic study. 

Good Samaritan Hospital is a NYS Designated Level II Trauma Center located on the south shore of Long Island.  The residents are exposed to a full array of forefoot and rearfoot traumatic and nontraumatic foot complaints presenting to the Emergency Department, as well as numerous inpatient consults.

Having a large podiatric attending staff provides residents with a multitude of surgical cases and procedures.  In addition, the podiatry service has an excellent working relationship with the Department of Orthopaedics, affording residents the opportunity to scrub in on a great majority of surgical cases, including all foot and ankle trauma. 

Residents rotate through private offices in their first, second and third years, which affords the opportunity to learn the necessary skills of private practice, as well as practice management. 

The podiatric residency program places a large emphasis on academics.  Weekly journal clubs, online lectures, guest lectures, cadaver workshops, case presentation and grand rounds constitute the didactic schedule. Residents attend outside podiatric lectures and participate in programs offered by the New York College of Podiatric Medicine, as well as a surgical board review course.  By the completion of the third year, each resident is expected to have completed a poster presentation and paper of publishable quality.
