As Director of Podiatric Medical Education at Long Island Jewish Medical Center and North Shore University Hospital at Manhasset, I would like to welcome you to our web page. The residency program continues to grow and expand in order to provide the best educational experience for our future residents as well as the highest level of quality care for our patients. As the American patient population's life expectancy and level of activity continue to grow, so does the need for quality foot care. In addition to reconstructive foot and ankle surgery, the needs of the diabetic patient with regard to preventing lower extremity amputations is directly linked to the podiatric care they receive. We remain dedicated to limb preservation and improving the quality of our patient's lives by maintaining their ability to ambulate and function normally.
The North Shore-LIJ Podiatric Medicine and Surgical Residency (PM & S 36) has been approved for four entry-level residents per year by the Council on Podiatric Medical Education. A total of 12 residents (four each year) rotate through all allopathic and podiatric services at both campuses. The program provides a wealth of educational resources including: reconstructive foot and ankle surgery; diabetic wound care and limb preservation; pediatric orthopedics and trauma. We continue to attract the best Podiatric physician candidates from colleges nationwide and provide a comprehensive and diverse educational experience.
