The Podiatry Residency Training Program at Bethesda Hospital East provides the recent graduate with the opportunity to gain extensive experience in the conditions associated with a general podiatric medical and surgical practice and to study advanced and related sciences essential for the practice of podiatric medicine and surgery.
We offer an extremely high-volume surgical program with attending physicians from diverse training backgrounds. Residents benefit from a strong clinical and didactical focus and frequently contribute to publications and presentations. Participants have a high pass rate for foot surgery and RRA boards.
Our program’s vision is to prepare residents to improve community foot and ankle health and collaborate effectively in the community healthcare structure.
