    The primary goal of the McLaren Oakland Podiatric Medicine and Surgery Residency Program is to provide an academically and clinically sound training program for the Resident, so that they can acquire outstanding knowledge and clinical skills in podiatric medicine and surgery (includes reconstructive rearfoot and ankle surgery credentials). The program has a strong emphasis on balancing clinical and surgical training with academic teaching and research. The aim of the program is to provide the trainee with the basic and clinical knowledge, foot and ankle surgical skills (elective, reconstructive, trauma, wound care, and limb salvage), development of clinical judgment, experiences in non-podiatry comprehensive medical and surgical subspecialty, research, ability to manage patient expectations and complications, ability to critically analyze and formulate treatment strategies, development in teaching and lecturing skills, professionalism and interpersonal skills required as a specialist practicing in podiatric medicine and surgery. The training will prepare Residents to excel as highly competent podiatric surgeons providing compassionate and comprehensive care in all areas of podiatric medicine and surgery. The training curriculum will allow the Resident to become independent active learners to be used for the rest of his/her career. Please direct any and all specific questions regarding the program to me (zeeshan.husain@mclaren.org).
