Message from the Program Director

The NYU Winthrop Residency program is accredited by the Council on Podiatric Medical Education to offer a residency program in podiatric medicine and surgery/reconstruction of the rear foot and ankle. The program is three years in length. We are accredited to accept two residents each year, for a total of six residents.

The Podiatric Residency at NYU Winthrop prepares a graduate for a successful career in either academic or clinical podiatric surgery. Residents receive broad operative experience through an abundance of surgical cases by podiatric surgeons and foot and ankle orthopedist. The teaching program will attempt to demonstrate to the resident a more effective method to treat inpatient problems while assuming increasing responsibility in outpatient, operative and emergency settings. Residents are part of a team approach to diabetic limb salvage, diabetic foot infections, and vascular disease. The department of Podiatry’s excellent relationship with the medical, orthopedics, general and sub-specialized services, including Plastic and Vascular Surgery, creates a multidisciplinary approach to inpatient management.
