Are you a self-motivated, hard-working individual who comes prepared every day? Then you will enjoy your experience and excel in this residency.
The Memorial Hospital of Rhode Island (MHRI) Podiatric Medicine and Surgery Residency is a three year program, approved by the Council on Podiatric Medical Education and accredited by The Joint Commission with the PMSR-RRA Certification. Memorial Hospital is a teaching affiliate of The Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University. Podiatry is the only surgical residency program at MHRI and residents are responsible for all foot and ankle calls.
The Podiatric Medicine and Surgery Residency is authorized for a total of six residents, two in each year of training. The residency is designed in a rotational structure, with the final year comprised of entirely podiatric medicine and surgery. All rotations are geared to teaching through a hands-on approach. Residents are well versed in all aspects of podiatric surgery including reconstructive rear foot and total ankle replacements.
As a resident, you are responsible for patient care and decision making, which increases as you progress through your training. These experiences are augmented with didactic activities such as journal club, lectures, and radiology rounds. Residents and attendings have teaching responsibilities to students and the surrounding community. Research opportunities are readily available if pursued, with full access to Brown University Medical Library's resources.
Residents are fully integrated into an active outpatient podiatric clinic as well as many of the attendings’ offices. This allows for involvement throughout a patient’s medical or surgical management. Residents also have rotations at Kent County Hospital in Warwick, RI providing even more opportunities to scrub and assist in surgery.
Clinical affiliations with podiatric medical schools allow third and fourth year students to rotate through MHRI on a monthly basis to augment their clinical curriculum. Housing is provided for externs who are actively involved in the clinic, operating room, patient floors and all didactic activities. Externships are strongly recommended for students to be considered for residency. If externship is not possible, we recommend visiting for at least one week.
