Welcome from the chair
Geisinger is the ideal place to train, offering both the comforts of living in northeastern Pennsylvania with the rigors of working in a not-for-profit, fully integrated health service organization that serves upwards of 1 million residents in 45 counties. Here, you’ll work with colleagues who prize excellence in care, education, research and service.
Our physician-led system includes a multidisciplinary physician group practice with systemwide-aligned goals, successful clinical programs, a sophisticated information technology platform, a robust research program and Geisinger Health Plan.
At the Geisinger Musculoskeletal Institute, our goals are to provide the highest-quality patient care, improve mobility and enhance the quality of life for all, while advancing the science of musculoskeletal surgery and its related disciplines through research and education. Excellence pervades our patient care, teaching, learning, opportunities and diversity. We stand ready to achieve prominence through a mindset of “all things possible.”
Our podiatry residency focuses on optimizing didactic, clinical and surgical excellence through a robust curriculum. Our residents rotate throughout the Geisinger system, allowing for increased surgical volume and access to broad patient demographics. Our weekly didactics are complemented by monthly hands-on skills labs, including quarterly cadaver labs. Plus, our internal research infrastructure enhances the overall education experience.
Thanks for visiting our website, and I invite you to explore what sets our Podiatry Residency program apart.
