The mission of the Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center Podiatric Medicine & Surgery - 36 (PM&S-36) is to train residents as health professionals who are involved in the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of foot and ankle disorders by medical, physical and surgical means. The program provides for podiatric training in a multidisciplinary setting where the residents can gain experience working with and along side other medical practitioners in providing total health care.
The residency program is designed to provide an intensive clinical experience, which supplements the resident's previous podiatric medical experience. This is a podiatric training program in a major teaching facility; the responsibilities placed on the residents will be substantial and challenging. The program is a CPME accredited Podiatric Medicine & Surgery - 36 (PM&S-36) program, the first year of training being completed at the John H. Stroger Hospital of Cook County. The residents will participate in rotations involving anesthesiology, emergency medicine, infectious disease, orthopedic surgery, general surgery, outpatient podiatry clinics, in-patient podiatry management, and podiatric surgery.
We can offer:
- Surgical training in a diverse array of pedal pathology, from simple operative procedures through to complex foot and ankle reconstructive procedures.
- Complete peri-operative management of patients for both outpatient and in-patient surgeries.
- Wide diversity of clinical settings in which to provide patient care (hospital, office and multidisciplinary health centers).
