Podiatry Residency ProgramWelcome to the Podiatric Medicine and Surgery Residency program at Mercy Health – St. Vincent Medical Center. The program was fully approved with a six-year accreditation cycle by┬áthe Council on Podiatric Medical Education in 2012 as a PMSR program with added Reconstructive Rearfoot/ankle credential. We accept 3 new residents each year. Our mission is to produce a well-rounded podiatric physician and surgeon who will work effectively as a member of an interdisciplinary team, help raise the stature of the profession, and have the desire to teach others both within and outside the podiatric profession.
