Program Director’s Welcome

Jackson North Podiatric Medical and Surgical Residency Program is an ACGME-approved (via the Council on Podiatric Medical Education), three-year Surgical Reconstructive Rearfoot/Ankle Surgery Residency-approved program of training which functions within the Jackson Health System. Our program is located at the Jackson North Medical Center campus in North Miami Beach, Florida. The program supports a total of six residents in training, two in the first year, two in the second year and two in the third year. While in training, residents must satisfy requirements set forth by the CPME for minimum numbers of case pathologies and surgical procedures in foot, rearfoot, ankle and lower leg. These interventions involve wound care, metabolic and developmental diseases, trauma, pediatric and preventive care.

In addition, residents are required to rotate through core practices in Internal Medicine, General Surgery, Pathology/Laboratory, Peripheral Vascular Disease, Orthopedics, Radiology and Emergency Medicine. The residency program functions under the direction of a director who is board-certified in Foot and Ankle Surgery, as well as Podiatric Medicine, Wound Care, Podopediatrics and Disability.

In addition, members of the podiatric and general medical staff participate in training via direct surgical supervision, journal club and floor rounding.

While in training, residents must sit for, and pass, eligibility examinations during the second and third years of training, which will open an eligibility window for board certification within the first seven years following graduation from the program.

Program Curriculum

Overview

This is a dedicated surgical residency program. While internships are not normally involved in Podiatric Medical postgraduate training, there are “core” rotations that take place in General Medicine, General Surgery, General Orthopedics, Radiology Pathology/Laboratory, Physical Rehabilitation and Emergency Medicine. In addition, residents have elective options for rotating through Psychiatry, Plastic Surgery, Vascular Surgery and Pediatrics.

Year 1

First year responsibilities include in-patient hospital floor responsibilities while also taking first call for the emergency department. Podiatry at Jackson North Medical Center is first call for all lower extremity trauma which leads to a high volume of forefoot and rearfoot trauma. First year residents will finish all soft tissue and rearfoot numbers by the end of their first year.

Year 2

Second year responsibilities include in-patient hospital floor responsibilities and second call for the emergency department. Your second year will be spent covering outpatient surgical centers, office/clinic hours and core rotations. By the end of the second year, residents should have completed all of their surgical numbers.

Year 3
