Podiatric Medicine and Surgery

Our program excels in preparing residents to function as experienced and competent podiatrists.

We provide training for three podiatric residents (one at each level) each academic year. Our program is the newest podiatric residency program in Iowa. We welcomed our first resident in November 2009.

Faculty Committed to Teaching and Mentoring

Our faculty is committed to working with our residents to ensure that our future podiatrists develop and maintain the skills necessary to function as key practitioners in any environment they choose.

Faculty members are committed to resident education and enjoy teaching. The attending physicians are always willing to teach and encourage learning in a professional environment.

Hands-On Surgical Experience

Our residency is designed to provide residents with a variety of clinical experiences over the course of the program. Specific emphasis is placed on significant hands-on case completion.  Surgical case load and diversity are excellent.
