Goals

The mission of our Foot and Ankle Surgical Residency Training Program is to promote, support, augment, develop, and encourage comprehensive investigative knowledge of the medical and surgical care of the foot, ankle, and lower leg.

The primary goal of our Program is to provide a sound academic and clinical educational foundation for all of our residents.  Our Program has been developed with special emphasis on an interdisciplinary approach to lower extremity disorders.

The second goal of the Program is to provide practitioners who have a dedicated interest in foot and ankle disorders with exposure to new knowledge, skills, and techniques to help optimize patient care. Our Program strives to serve as an educational resource, not only to residents but also to practitioners, including physicians, allied health professionals, and ancillary medical personnel. We meet this goal through continuing medical education seminars, abstract presentations, radiology reviews, weekly grand rounds, and various types of educational exhibits.
