Tasks

Surgery

The primary responsibilities of our residents are to scrub in and contribute during surgical cases. Past residents have averaged over 500 procedures per resident per year, with a large percentage of those cases being rearfoot, reconstructive, or ankle procedures.

There are many podiatry surgery cases scheduled each day of the week (Monday thru Friday), with emergent procedures performed on weekends as well. Podiatry residents are also encouraged to assist with general surgery, orthopedic surgery, as well as plastic surgery cases when possible.

Clinic

Clinical experiences are gained thru time spent in attending offices.

The second year resident (PGY-2) spends one day per week in clinic with the director of residency training (David J Neese, DPM). The primary objective of this experience is observing post-operative patients as well as for additional exposure with working up the complex surgical patient. Opportunities with other attendings are also available when requested.

Consultations

Emergency Department and hospital inpatient consultations are a significant component of the residency training process. When on call, the resident is responsible for any and all foot and ankle consultation requests, which may include complex trauma situations, emergent diabetic foot evaluations, as well as for a variety of inpatient care needs.
