Podiatric Training Programs
CPME-Accredited Podiatric Residency and Fellowship Programs at UH Regional Hospitals
There are approximately 14,000 licensed doctors of podiatric medicine in the U.S., and employment of podiatrists is expected to increase 20 percent by 2020. However, the number of older Americans is also increasing steadily, and statistics show an epidemic increase of diabetes. These factors mean the need for quality foot and ankle care is becoming increasingly important.
The acclaimed podiatric residency and fellowship programs at UH Regional Hospitals Department of Medical Education are taking the lead in fulfilling the growing need for lower extremity specialists.
