The Podiatric Surgery Residency program is staffed by over 130 Michigan podiatric surgeons.  There vast majority are board certified in their specialty.  Additionally, the program shares the teaching faculty with all the other Detroit Medical Center residency and fellowship programs.  There are approximately 1000 residents and fellows currently being trained through this department of Graduate Medical Education.

Listed below are the program administrators as well as the chiefs of the rotations that the residents complete within the DMC system.  The podiatry residents function as residents of that service for the rotation where they take full in-house call, manage in-patients, and manage surgical patients peri-operatively as well as in the operating room.  Our residents are treated as equals with the allopathic and osteopathic residents.
