On July 27, 2017, we were granted approval to commence the Podiatric Medicine and Surgery Residency with Reconstructive Rearfoot/Ankle Program on August 1, 2017 by the Council on Podiatric Medicine (CPME).

Our newly accredited program was recognized in the Michigan Podiatric Medical Association magazine.

Our Mission Statement

The Mission of the podiatric surgical residency is to provide the trainee with the knowledge and clinical experience in foot and ankle surgery to become competent and well qualified to practice as a podiatric physician and surgeon. This goal will be accomplished by combining an academic environment with training in podiatric surgery including forefoot surgery and reconstructive rearfoot and ankle surgery. The Mission is to provide the trainee with the experience of in-patient and outpatient protocol and the services offered by the various departments of the hospital so that he/she may function as a well-qualified member of the medical staff. Additionally, the Mission is to provide the trainee an awareness that many foot and ankle pathologies are not limited in nature, but may be of a systemic origin and require a solid foundation in the basics of internal medicine.

Whom Do We Want?

We seek enthusiastic seekers who will make important contributions to our field. We will select for the most promising talent available, as these individuals will help us to develop a rigorous and innovative program and they will be the “proof of concept” that we have succeeded in our educational objectives. Those who share aspects of our mission, which includes the expansion of faculty and services in Northern Michigan, are especially encouraged to apply, but others, who intend to make their special contributions to the field in other places and in other ways, will also find that our program will supply an outstanding training for whatever their personal mission in podiatry may be.

"Dr. Cohen and his team are building a Podiatry program the right way within an established network of MD residencies. This is a place to learn medicine and thrive."  Dr. Austin Friswold PGY-1

"Reflecting on my brief time at the CMU podiatry residency I can sincerely say this is the most rewarding and validating experience thus far in my career. To finally apply 4 years of education in the real world is challenging yet exciting; with attending's not only willing to teach but an enthusiasm to teach. I know I will be well trained and am happy to show up for work every day.

Living in Saginaw, life is simple. Coming from Manhattan there are stark differences. There is no commute, living is extremely affordable, and the people have a genuine pleasant demeanor. Overall, I am happy where I'm at."  Dr. Owen Morris PGY-1
