​How to apply for The Christ Hospital Podiatric Medicine & Surgery Residency Program


Student/Clerkship Applicants

The Christ Hospital has affiliation agreements in place with the podiatric medical schools, to allow students to rotate through The Christ Hospital as externs. Our program participates in the clerkship rounds through DPMclerkships.  However, we also accept and schedule students for clerkships after the rounds are complete, if slots are available.

  • Free meals and parking at the hospital.

  • It is encouraged that the student has a car for their clerkship.

  • Housing is not provided to students. The Christ Hospital has agreements for special pricing at local hotels, if the students are inclined to take advantage of this arrangement.

We offer up to 2 clerkships per month, except for the months of June and July. The months of June and July are used to acclimate the new resident(s) to our program. We consider having students as a benefit to our program. It is an opportunity to assess their work ethic and test their skills and knowledge prior to residency interviews. It is also advantageous for the student to see if our program would be a good fit for them.

Students will assist the residents with their daily duties (clinic, rounding, surgery, didactics, etc.). Students are expected to participate in any activities after normal work hours and on weekends as well, such as journal clubs and surgeries. While we want to offer a rewarding educational opportunity to the students, at no time should the presence of students impede the learning or experience of the residents.

Residency Applicants

All prospective podiatric residents wishing to apply to the Christ Hospital Program will need to apply through the CASPR application process. The Christ Hospital PMSR program representatives attend CASPR/CRIP for the selection process.
