Seeking Fellowships

Fellowships are relatively new to the field of podiatric surgery and present the opportunity for advanced training and further specialization within the field. Typically one year in duration, a fellowship is initiated following completion of a residency training program. Specializations that offer fellowships include, but are not limited to:

  • Advanced Rearfoot Reconstruction
  • Research

An ACFAS Recognized Fellowship should be considered by those who would like a complement or supplement to their residency training, those who plan to practice within an academic setting, or those who are interested in highly specialized practices.

Those interested in pursuing a fellowship should begin looking in earnest during the second year of their residency training. Application requirements and deadlines are individualized to the each program. Please review each program's webpage to learn about the process. Residents who are interested should begin gathering information as soon as possible, ask as many questions about the process as possible and find an experienced mentor who has been through it before.
