Podiatric Medicine and Surgery

Welcome to the Chino Valley Medical Center PMSR/RRA Podiatric Medicine and Surgery Residency Program.

This is a three year podiatric medical and surgical program based out of Southern California. Surgical numbers far exceed what is required in all categories with a wide variety of foot and ankle pathology, including diabetic limb salvage, elective procedures, flat foot reconstruction, management of acute and chronic conditions as well as acute trauma. The residents are fully integrated with allopathic and osteopathic residents. Our residents receive experience working with a wide variety of different attendings and settings of podiatry. Rotations in podiatry include working with various settings including Kaiser Central California(Modesto,Stockton, Manteca) private practice including Stockdale Podiatry Group (Bakersfield) Empire Foot & Ankle and Garey Orthopedics. The surgical and clinical exposure to a wide variety of clinical and surgical scenarios further expands the education of CVMC’s podiatry resident’s experience by introducing our residents to various potential practice models to help guide their future careers once completing their comprehensive PMSR/RRA training at CVMC. Our program has evolved into a comprehensive training program with integration of several different facilities, which provides an excellent, well-rounded education for our residents. In total, our residents operate with over 20 different podiatric surgeons during their 3 years of podiatric residency training with the goal in mind to create physicians and surgeons who can think for themselves and create individualized care plans based on a diverse patient population based on their individual needs. At Chino Valley, we are not satisfied with the status quo and are constantly striving to better not only our patient care and outcomes but our resident training and the program as a whole.
