The Kent Hospital Podiatric Medicine and Surgical Residency, RRA Program is designed to accommodate the individual learning needs of the physician who has completed a program of study at a Council of Podiatric Medical Education (CPME) approved college of medicine. Approved for six (6) residents – 2 PGY1; 2 PGY2; 2 PGY3.


The residency is designed in a rotational structure. Rotations follow a 12-block format. All rotations are geared to teaching through a hands-on approach. The resident is responsible for patient care and decision making, which increases as they progress through their training. The surgical cases seen by the residents vary from simple hammertoe and bunion procedures, to complex rear foot reconstruction, ankle fractures and dislocations and total ankle replacement surgery.
