Comprehensive Training in Podiatric Medicine and Surgery

University Hospitals' podiatric training program started in the late 1980s. The first class graduated three residents. Today, as part of University Hospitals Geauga Medical Center, the residency stands as one of the largest and most successful podiatric training programs in the U.S.

The Podiatric Medicine/Surgical Residency is exclusively a three-year learning experience. The hands-on, surgery based program is fully accredited by the Council on Podiatric Medical Education. University Hospitals works in collaboration with Kent State University College of Podiatric Medicine in the training of residents, with both clinical and research faculty contributing.

The residency program features the active participation and support of 12 area hospitals, six surgical centers, and 75 adjunct allopathic, osteopathic, and podiatric faculty members in diverse urban, suburban, and rural care settings. Over the last quarter-century, University Hospitals has graduated over 250 podiatric residents. Our physicians now practice lower extremity care across the U.S. in nearly all 50 states.
