What are you looking for when selecting a resident?
We are looking for a well-rounded and mature individual who has the ability to work independently, but more importantly, thrives on being part of a team with faculty and co-residents. The best candidate understands the concept that residency will be an on-going learning process, and skills will continue to improve with time and patience. We require passage of Part I and II of the National Board of Podiatric Medical Examiners, as well as United States citizenship or permanent residency in the United States.

Unfortunately, our program does not offer an externship for students at this time.
How do you schedule a visit?
We highly encourage potential applicants to visit the program to see all that it has to offer. During your visit, you will spend time in the office and tour the hospital, as we truly believe it is the best way to see firsthand what the program has to offer. You will meet the people you will work with and determine if it's the right fit for you. We understand that it may be difficult for students to visit, due to conflicts with school rotation schedules, but we will work with you to make arrangements that fit your schedule. Please call (312) 770-3801 to schedule a visit.
Do you accept applicants from all the podiatric colleges?
