Ortho guys have not the slightest clue what a "big name, top teir" podiatric residency program is.
Congrats on the job, however I'm not sure I agree with this statement.
Ortho groups would likely recognize highly respected institutions, such as the following:
Beth Israel Deaconess
Ohio State University
Univ of Texas Health San Antonio
Univ of Pittsburgh Medical Center
Univ of Cincinnati
Swedish Medical Center
These are just a few examples of well known hospitals that also have a podiatry residency. I would imagine any ortho group would recognize these names and think more highly of them because of their reputation. Some highly thought of podiatric residencies are only "highly thought of" in the pod world.
I have no idea if this is actually true - it's just a thought.
