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 (PM&S-36), approved by the Council on Podiatric Medical Education and accredited by The Joint Commission. Memorial Hospital is a teaching affiliate of The Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University.
The Podiatric Medicine and Surgery Residency is authorized for a total of three residents, one 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.
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 and lectures. Residents and attendings have teaching responsibilities to students and the surrounding community. Research opportunities are readily available if pursued.
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 scrub and assist in surgery at a local surgery center that is not affiliated with MHRI.
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. Externs are actively involved in the clinic, operating room, patient floors and all didactic activities.
