Program Summary/Training Goals:

  • The NOFA Foot and Ankle Reconstruction Fellowship encompasses all aspects of podiatric medicine and surgery. The NOFA training faculty affords the fellow a rich and diverse experience across northeastern Ohio. We emphasize complete physician/patient interaction from both clinical and surgical experiences.
  • Rearfoot and ankle reconstruction will dominate the surgical load, including TAR and trauma.
  • The fellow will also hone clinical decision making skills such as ordering applicable and appropriate diagnostic tests, clinical patient examination, cast and splint application, post-operative patient management, research, and public speaking skills.
  • Ample opportunities will be afforded for didactics, cadaver labs, and conferences.
  • Publishable quality research and data is mandated as is attendance and participation at the ACFAS Annual Scientific Conference.
  • The ultimate goal is to produce highly trained professionals who continue to advance the practice of podiatry and continue the pursuit of education and research.
