Feedback From Graduates
"Residency was a privileged opportunity to gain surgical skills to best serve my patients. It was one of the most rewarding experiences of my life. The residency program also taught me how to interact with other physicians, nurses and hospital staff to work as a team in providing care to my patients."
- James Rosso, D.P.M.
"This residency program really helped me prepare for my career as a podiatrist. With over 1,200 surgical cases logged, I felt very comfortable stepping into the OR for the first time as the primary surgeon. With training emphasis on rear-foot reconstructive procedures in the final year, there is nothing that I feel I can't diagnose and treat. The staff is friendly, intelligent and always willing to help. I enjoyed this residency so much that I recently became the associate program director."
- Scott Jacobsen, D.P.M.
"The 3-year podiatric medicine and surgery residency prepared me to become a practicing podiatric physician and surgeon by granting me exposure and participation in a wide variety of clinical and surgical treatment plans. It also provided a warm and friendly environment conducive to learning with attending physicians from all specialties who were willing to take the time to teach me about their particular area of expertise. I feel as though my experience during residency training at Saint Joseph Hospital has been invaluable in serving to make me a well rounded and compassionate health care provider."
