Program overview

The Aventura Hospital's Podiatric Medicine and Surgery Residency program is committed to training our residents in comprehensive foot and ankle surgery, medicine, trauma and limb salvage.

We are a three-year program with the added Reconstructive Rearfoot/Ankle Surgery (PMSR-RRA) credential. The competencies and rotations for this program will train and teach a graduating podiatric student to be competent in foot and ankle surgery.

This program is designed to offer a rewarding, educational environment where residents are provided individualized learning opportunities by faculty and staff who support and sustain one another throughout quality care delivery. Our faculty are committed to ensuring the residents' clinical experience and educational needs are fulfilled while expanding residents' perspectives to be inclusive of cultures, values and ideals.

The PMSR-RRA program provides educational experiences for a podiatry resident to become proficient in general surgical and medical principles as well as to develop an in-depth understanding of podiatric surgery of the foot, including advanced rearfoot/ankle surgery and trauma.

The PMSR-RRA resident will also be trained to be proficient at diagnosing and treating diseases of the lower extremity with emphasis on foot and ankle surgery and biomechanics.

During the course of the PMSR-RRA program, the podiatric resident should integrate into the medical community and learn to work with other healthcare professionals in the field.
