Podiatric Medicine and Surgery Residency 

Podiatry Residents 2019-2020

Message from the Director

Eric Temple, D.P.M. , FACFAS

Program Director


The podiatric medicine and surgery residency program at Iowa Methodist Medical Center excels in preparing residents to function as competent podiatrists through the completion of significant numbers of procedures and a wide variety of rotations. As a member of the podiatric faculty, I can assure you that over the course of our three-year residency, our residents develop the skills necessary to function as key practitioners in any environment they choose. The facilities at Iowa Methodist Medical Center and associated clinics in the Des Moines metropolitan area are unsurpassed.

Our residency program is one of six training programs at Iowa Methodist, Blank Children's Hospital, Iowa Lutheran Hospital and Methodist West Hospital. Some 100 residents comprise these programs each year. Graduate medical education at our hospitals is considered a priority, and we are very proud of our programs and the residents.

Des Moines and its suburbs provide many cultural, athletic and recreational opportunities while retaining the cosmopolitan charm of a large Midwestern city. I encourage you to explore our website to learn more about our city and surrounding areas. 

I invite you to review the specifics of our program and contact us with any questions regarding podiatric medicine and surgery residency training at Iowa Methodist Medical Center.
