Resident Demographics/Post-Graduate Opportunities
Podiatry Resident Demographics
Due to the strong reputation of our program we are able to attract applicants from all eight colleges of podiatric medicine. We do receive a greater percentage of applicants from the New York College of Podiatric Medicine and the Temple School of Podiatric Medicine located in Philadelphia, PA do to obvious geographic considerations of the applicants. Our academic criteria require applicants to be in the top 40% of their graduating class but we frequently secure incoming residents who were in the top 10% of their class. We traditionally match in the first round and frequently secure our first choices. During their training, the residents live in close geographic proximity to Hoboken UMC do to the long hours and frequent ED and Service Call responsibilities. Many chose to reside within the town of Hoboken.
Post Graduate Opportunities
In the past fifteen years, every graduating podiatry resident has had an employment opportunity secured well before finishing their third year of residency. Do to the strong reputation of the program in producing clinically competent podiatric physicians and the large number of podiatry attendings they work with, many job offers come from podiatry staff members looking to grow their own practices or to add additional members to multi-physician groups. Many of our residents have also secured positions with large orthopedic surgery groups or large multispecialty physician groups, often within New Jersey. These same residents frequently apply for staff privileges at Hoboken UMC and this keeps our Division robust, further enhancing the residency training. Our graduates have also gone on to administrative and educational positions. Two notable examples are graduates who have served as Chiefs of Podiatry at Somerset Medical Center in New Jersey, Montefiore Medical Center in New York and Sacred Heart Hospital in Pennsylvania. Over the course of each year the Program Director receives multiple inquires on graduating residents to fill various employment opportunities. Do to this high demand for our graduating physicians we have not had to institute any formal placement services for our residents. The Program Director and Assistant Director, as well as seasoned Podiatry Staff members always make themselves available to discuss career opportunities with our third year residents.
