Residency in Podiatry

Program Director: Lynne M. Casper, D.P.M.

The Podiatric Medical and Surgical--36 residency program at Mercy Suburban Hospital is designed to help the podiatric medical school graduate become a well-rounded podiatric physician. Mercy Suburban's podiatric staff is dedicated to training residents in diagnosing and treating a wide range of foot and ankle pathologies in a competent, compassionate and ethical manner. The staff's goal is to provide exposure to didactic and practical learning opportunities in an interdisciplinary setting. The resident will have ample opportunity to develop these qualities through observation and hands-on training. One resident position is approved per post graduate year and all three positions are funded.

Mercy Suburban Hospital is a teaching hospital with residencies in Family Practice, Internal Medicine, Orthopedics, General Surgery and Obstetrics-Gynecology. Podiatry residents also benefit from outside podiatry surgical rotations at Brandywine Hospital and Pottstown Memorial Medical Center.

Benefits include an annual stipend, health insurance, professional liability insurance, workman's compensation insurance, two-weeks vacation, paid membership in APMA, credit toward book purchases, post graduate conference allowances, free meals and free parking.
