Podiatry Residency Program

The Podiatric Medicine and Surgery Residency Programs at St. Barnabas Hospital are composed of a 36-month program offering podiatric medicine and surgery (PMSR) and a 48-month podiatric medicine and surgery with additional credentialing in reconstructive rear-foot and ankle surgery (PMSR/RRA).  These programs are approved by the Council on Podiatric Medicine Education and currently each program accepts 3 new residents per year.  At full capacity, the hospital has a total of 21 podiatric residents.

Located in the Bronx, New York, and surrounded by 1.6 million people that live and work in this New York City borough, the podiatric and orthopedic surgeons at St. Barnabas Hospital have been providing the highest level of primary care, trauma surgery, reconstructive and elective surgery of the foot and ankle for decades.  Our residency program is one of the oldest in the hospital and has a long track record of training hundreds of foot surgeons.

The economic, racial, and national diversity of the population in the area where the hospital is located provides a significant amount of common and rare podiatric and orthopedic pathology. This experience, combined with being just miles outside of the center of New York City, makes this program a very special place to spend  three or four years completing a residency.

As the American patient population’s life expectancy and level of activity continue to grow, so does the need for quality foot care. In addition to reconstructive foot and ankle surgery, the needs of the diabetic patient with regard to preventing lower extremity amputations is directly linked to the podiatric care they receive. The program provides a wealth of educational resources including: reconstructive foot and ankle surgery; diabetic wound care and limb preservation; pediatric orthopedics and trauma. We continue to attract the best podiatric physician candidates from colleges nationwide and provide a comprehensive and diverse educational experience.
