Training Skilled Podiatrists at Carilion Clinic
The podiatric residency program at Carilion Clinic is a PMSR (Podiatric Medicine and Surgery Residency)with added RRA Credential (Rearfoot/Ankle Reconstructive) under the new model and has received approval from the Council on Podiatric Medical Education.
Carilion Clinic is a large academic medical center that provides comprehensive medical care to the citizens of southwest Virginia. There are eight hospitals within the health system. The residency will be based at Carilion Roanoke Memorial Hospital which is a 800-bed facility that serves as the region’s Level 1 Trauma Center.
In 2010, Carilion Clinic and Virginia Tech partnered to open the Virginia Tech Carilion School of Medicine and Research Institute. This clearly underscores the institutions' dedication to research, training, and academic medicine.
Our program is fully integrated with the Carilion Clinic Department of Orthopaedics, which was recently ranked as one of the nation’s top orthopaedics groups by US News and World Reports.
The mission of the Carilion Clinic Podiatry Residency program is to use a structured and directed self learning model in an academic medical center setting. The program will be supported by a team of experienced podiatric and orthopaedic faculty to develop outstanding podiatrists who are prepared to pursue board certification in foot surgery and reconstructive rear foot/ankle surgery.
