The Podiatric Medicine and Surgery residency with Rearfoot Reconstructive
Accreditation (PMSE/RRA) at Suburban Community Hospital is designed to
help the podiatric medical school graduate become a well-rounded podiatric
physician. Suburban Community's podiatric staff is dedicated to training
residents in diagnosing and treating a wide range of foot and ankle pathologies
in a competent, compassionate and ethical manner. The staff's goal
is to provide exposure to didactic and practical learning opportunities
in an interdisciplinary setting. The resident will have ample opportunity
to develop these qualities through observation and hands-on training.
Two resident positions are approved per post graduate year and all six
positions are funded.
Suburban Community Hospital is a teaching hospital with residencies in
Family Medicine, Internal Medicine, and General Surgery. Podiatry residents
also benefit from outside podiatry surgical rotations at Brandywine Hospital
and Pottstown Memorial Medical Center.
Benefits include an annual stipend, health insurance, professional liability
insurance, workman's compensation insurance, two-weeks’ vacation,
paid membership in APMA, credit toward book purchases, post graduate conference
allowances, free meals and free parking.
Clinical Rotations: Each resident rotates with orthopedics, internal medicine, and infectious
disease for one month each year. First year residents rotate with the
general/vascular surgery, pathology, radiology, physical therapy, and
behavior health services. Second and third year residents have the opportunity
to rotate with dermatology, rheumatology, wound care, among others during
their elective months.
