Podiatric Medicine and Surgery Residency
The Podiatric Medicine and Surgery Residency with Reconstructive Rearfoot and Ankle Surgery at Mount Sinai is dedicated to fostering a program that emphasizes excellent education in a comfortable learning environment. We believe that people achieve the most in a positive learning climate. The outstanding relationship between our house staff, attending staff, and voluntary podiatric faculty is an aspect of our program in which we take particular pride.
U.S. News & World Report ranks Mount Sinai 16th in the nation in its 2014-2015 "Best Hospitals" issue. Mount Sinai is also recognized in numerous specialties, one of which is Orthopaedics. The Division of Podiatry is in the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery. There are more than 30 podiatrists on the staff, many of whom are actively involved in residency training. Additionally, the residents work closely with the orthopaedic residents and surgeons, several of whom specialize in foot and ankle surgery.
The 36-month podiatric medical and surgical residency (PMSR) training program at Mount Sinai is fully accredited by CPME and offers the “added credential” for reconstructive rearfoot and ankle surgery. The goal of the residency program is to provide effective, quality patient care in a stimulating academic environment to support educational growth and development. We currently are approved for 24 PMSR residents in training; eight in each postgraduate year. Residents who complete our program are board-eligible for ABPM, as well as by ABPS for foot surgery and reconstructive rearfoot and ankle surgery.
The Podiatric Medicine and Surgery Residency, with the added credential for Reconstructive Rearfoot and Ankle Surgery, has been sponsored at Mount Sinai’s Manhattan campus since July 2013. Prior to that, it had been sponsored by Mount Sinai Hospital of Queens. In June 10, 2013, the Council on Podiatric Medical education approved a request to transfer and combine the PMSR/ RRA from New York Downtown Hospital (NYDH) and the PMSR/ RRA from Mount Sinai Hospital Queens (MSQ), to a combined PMSR/ RRA program sponsored by Mount Sinai Hospital Manhattan (MSH), effective July 1, 2013.
