Academic Program

Residency training at the Yale program not only provides hands on instruction, but is meant to enhance the podiatric and medical education that began in podiatric medical school.

The program faculty has a strong foundation in podiatric medical education, and includes former podiatric medical school department chairmen and professors, many nationally known lecturers and researchers, as well as former podiatric residency directors and instructors from other programs.

Many of the core faculty members hold clinical faculty appointments at Yale Medical School as Assistant Clinical Professors
