Student and Audition Rotations 

The Podiatric Medicine and Surgery Residency Program participates in clerkships which exposes students to all facets of podiatric medicine and surgery in the hospital, professional office, and clinical settings. Students in their third and fourth year of podiatric medical training are typically required to participate in clinical sciences and patient care judgment. Students participate in a three to four week rotation (40 hours per week) in a hospital or ambulatory surgery center. Students are expected to observe and participate in basic podiatric procedures as outlined in their clerkship and approved by their college or institution.

Auditions are highly recommended for anyone seeking to interview with the program.

The Podiatric Medicine and Surgery Residency Program audition season is February through December. There are a total of 3-clerkships offered each month except July.
