Very few podiatrists ever get the opportunity to work at a Level 1 trauma center with a burn unit. Our podiatry residents are PGY-1 general surgery residents during their first year of training. After establishing a strong base in surgical principles, our residents begin intensive training in podiatric medicine and surgery.
While not working, residents take advantage of Phoenix’s 360 days of sunshine that enables year-round outdoor activities, including golf, tennis, mountain biking, climbing, and numerous public parks. Phoenix is also home to the World Wildlife Zoo and Aquarium, the Phoenix Zoo, Desert Botanical Gardens, Opera, Concerts, and Broadway plays. For the sports enthusiast, professional sports, including PGA and WPGA tournaments, baseball, basketball, football, the AVP Crocs World Tour, and triple A hockey, are available in all seasons.
