Podiatric Medicine Surgery Residency (PMSR) Program

The PMSR program offers the resident the medical, biomechanical and surgical skills necessary to treat the foot and ankle. The first year concentrates on the medical and biomechanical management of the foot and ankle with an emphasis in diabetic limb salvage surgery. The second and third years offer the resident a wide variety of elective foot and ankle surgical opportunities in surrounding community hospitals and surgical centers. There is a strong didactic lecture series with presentations and surgical workshops. The resident integrates into several training experiences with the surgical and medical residents from the Milton S. Hershey Medical School on the University Service.
