Mount Sinai’s Podiatric Surgery Residency Program has been developed to provide a select group of qualified podiatric medical school graduates with the ability to provide high-quality surgical care and successfully complete the accreditation process established by the American Board of Podiatric Surgery.
Brief Overview of Program
As an inner-city Level One trauma center, Mount Sinai Hospital gives podiatric surgery residents immediate exposure to foot and ankle trauma rarely seen in literature. From severe diabetic food infections and all levels of amputation to abundant elective forefoot and rearfoot surgery, our program equips residents to emerge well-versed in all phases of podiatry. Another side of our program is our affiliation with DVA – North Chicago as James A. Lovell Federal Health Care Center (JALFHCC), where we care for veterans, active duty members of the military, and their dependents.
