i tried looking for something about this but i didnt find anything. my first question concerns podiatry residencies, are all of them more or less the same? what i mean to say is, do some of them already have a focus on say.....diabetic wound care? or does that come later. are the PM/S 24/36 residencies all the same in nature of study or do some have more a specific surgery component (pediatric foot surgery)?? do all the residencies have a surgery component? i have a brochure that that says some DPMs do a one year residency. i looked online and couldn't find much on this. so this that in primary care? i went to some of the pod school websites, and couldn't find any information to clarify this. my second question concerns schools as well as residencies. if i should choose to say attend Barry university, i have read on this site that it's not the "best" school-- but i am still drawn on to it due to location. what i wish to know if that if i do choose to attend Barry ---- how does the school you attend play into a podiatric graduate being able to gain a pm/s 36 residency? do graduates from lower end schools have the same opportunity in gaining a PM/S 36 spot? how does obtaining a residency work? those 2 questions were in reality a lot of questions. thanks in advance for any answers!
