Podiatry Curriculum and Rotations

Vanderbilt University Medical Center's Podiatric Residency Program started in 2022. The Program is PMSR/RRA qualified and has been approved to take one (1) resident per year.

Over the course of three (3) years, the resident will successfully complete each of the required rotations as set forth by the CPME. These rotations shall include:


The residency curriculum shall provide the resident patient management experiences in both inpatient and outpatient settings. Due to the expansive nature of Vanderbilt University Medical Center, residents are able to work with a broad variety of specialties among dozens of different clinicians. The podiatry residency encompasses several Vanderbilt area locations, as well as the VA Medical Center in Nashville.

We pride ourselves on a strong surgical caseload volume. By the end of three (3) years, a resident will have met all the caseload requirements based strictly off the CPME definitions of first assist during surgery.
