  • Podiatric Medicine - How to Apply

    What are the application requirements?

    The Podiatric Surgical Residency Program is open to all candidates from podiatry schools. Applications for the residency program are only accepted through the Centralized Application Service for Podiatric Residencies (CASPR). This service is sponsored by the American Association of Colleges of Podiatric Medicine (AACPM). The AACPM will submit the following documents to the applicant’s choice of residency program(s): a residency application, three letters of reference, official transcripts, clinical evaluations, and a personal statement. For additional information on CASPR and an application, please visit the AACPM website.

    In addition to the CASPR application, candidates must also submit an application fee of $35.00 (payable to AEMC Podiatric Residency Program) directly to the residency program by the deadline listed on the residency program listing in the CASPR Residency Program Directory. Please send application fee to:

    Einstein Medical Center Podiatric Surgery Residency Program
    2 Penn Blvd. Suite 116
    Philadelphia, PA 19144.

    Candidates are expected to pass the NBPME Part I, Part II and Part III. These exams are required to obtain a Pennsylvania Podiatric Medical License, which is required at the start of all Podiatric Surgical Residency Programs in Pennsylvania.

    We recommend program visitation during the year for interested students who did not have an opportunity to do an externship or an office clerkship with the residency program. Interviews for the program will be conducted each year at the East CRIP. It is always helpful to be familiar with the residency program before applying.

    Eligibility & Selection

    In order to be eligible for appointment to the CPME accredited Einstein podiatry residency training program, an applicant must be a graduate of a podiatry medical training institution in the United States that is accredited by the Council of Podiatric Medical Education (CPME). 

    In addition, Podiatry residents must meet all Pennsylvania State Board of Podiatry licensure requirements for entrance into the Einstein residency program.

    Applicants that do not possess the above stated qualifications will be considered non-eligible for enrollment in the Einstein sponsored podiatry residency program.

    International Applicants

    Physicians who are not US citizens, must possess an appropriate work visa or permanent residence status (green card).  Applicants should discuss sponsorship of an appropriate work visa with the Residency Program Director at the time of interview. Applicants that Match to Einstein Healthcare Network for residency are responsible for obtaining the appropriate work visa or authorization.
