Our Residency Program

The Society also provides financial support to the residency training program when the hospital budget falls short. It is vital that we support educational endeavors and opportunities for our residents.

This includes funding for resources in the wet lab, new C-arms and equipment, sending residents to conferences, financial support for non-funded research projects, and more.

This is why our foot and ankle residency program is one of the best in the nation and gives us the ability to continue recruiting highly skilled and motivated students.

We Depend on Your Support

The Society needs your financial support. Make a tax-deductible donation today.
