Clinical and surgical rotations afford the podiatric surgery resident exposure in orthopedics and private podiatric practice. One of the most valuable and attractive aspects of podiatric medicine includes the multi-disciplinary approach to treating the patient. Therefore, residents spend time on vascular and general surgery, plastic surgery, emergency medicine, hospitalist/family medicine night float as well as endocrinology, dermatology and basic orthopedics. Second-year residents spend a 2-week pathology rotation at BAKO labs in Georgia.
The director, Kimberlee B. Hobizal, DPM and the assistant director, Tresa Wize, DPM are both fellowship-trained with emphasis on reconstructive foot and ankle surgery, wound care and limb-salvage techniques. There is a strong focus, not only on clinical practice but also academics with weekly didactic and research opportunities.
