Program Summary/Training Goals:
The CHI Franciscan Health Foot & Ankle Fellowship Program
provides a recent podiatric residency graduate with the opportunity to gather
real-world experience in clinical podiatric practice and surgical techniques and also provides research opportunities. The program's goal is to
supplement the training that the fellow received during his/her residency and
to fill in any voids in knowledge, training or skill to produce a
well-rounded podiatric physician/surgeon.
- Provide an opportunity for supervised advanced clinical experience in the recognition and management of foot and ankle pathology. S/he will also gain knowledge in secondary prevention of chronic disease as it relates to the foot and ankle.
- Emphasize the intertwined relationship of the basic sciences and clinical practice by affording opportunities to use the complete physical record of the patient before, during and after medical and surgical treatment.
Familiarity with hospital procedure, scope of
practice and functions of other healthcare divisions.
