CarePoint Health offers a Podiatric Medical Surgery Residency Program, with added credentialing in Reconstructive Rearfoot/Ankle Surgery (PMSR/RRA), at Hoboken University Medical Center.
The residency program provides podiatric physicians diverse training in all aspects of podiatric medicine and surgery, along with direct clinical training in many relevant non-podiatric medical and surgical specialties.
Residents experience tremendous clinical volume including numerous surgical cases involving both reconstructive foot and ankle surgery and foot and ankle trauma. As part of the program, one resident is on call in the emergency department at Hoboken University Medical Center 24/7—under the supervision of both podiatry attending and emergency department physicians—to provide direct patient care for all foot and ankle trauma cases.
Residents also care for patients in Hoboken University Medical Center high volume Podiatry Clinic and at its Wound Care Center, which offers hyperbaric oxygen treatments.
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. Due to the strong reputation of the program in producing clinically competent podiatric physicians, and the large number of podiatry attending physicians, many job offers come from podiatry staff members looking to grow their own practices or to expand 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. Our graduates have also gone on to administrative and educational positions.
Training resources outside of Hoboken University Medical Center
To further enhance the podiatry medicine and surgery training, and to fulfill training requirements as established by the Council on Podiatric Medical Education (CPME), our residents participate in a number of training experiences outside of Hoboken University Medical Center (HUMC). This allows them to work with Hoboken staff podiatrists in non-hospital settings, as well as exposing them to both medical doctors and podiatrists who are not on staff at HUMC.
Office based rotations occur at private office locations in New Jersey with podiatric preceptors who are active staff members at HUMC. Here, the resident is immersed in a real world private practice experience that enhances their ability to successfully enter practice upon graduation.
As a program that is fully accredited by the CPME, we follow a strict set of guidelines that must be fulfilled in order to maintain our fully accredited standing. These guidelines are laid out in detail in the document titled CPME 320, Standards and Requirements for Approval of Podiatric Residencies. This covers both training in podiatric medicine and all other training required in non-podiatric disciplines.
