How to Apply

The program participates in the national residency match process conducted by the American Association of Colleges of Podiatric Medicine and has historically interviewed at one of the regional sites of the centralized residency interview process (CRIP). Every year, two residents are chosen for the residency program and candidates are asked to make a firm three-year commitment.

Selection is based on the applicant’s commitment to the practice of podiatric surgery, their interests and life experiences, the strengths of their academic record, and their ability to work collaboratively. Externships at CHA or visitation to our hospital campuses are encouraged prior to the interview process.

All offers of appointment to CHA sponsored training programs are specifically conditioned upon a criminal background investigation and a negative drug test (uses workplace standards, including chain of custody, marijuana is excluded from the testing). Background checks will be carried out by an agency on behalf of CHA. By signing the background check release form, prospective trainees are consenting to a background investigation. The drug test must be completed within 10 days of matching (all costs are covered by CHA). It will be conducted at CHA Occupational Health for those residents within 20 miles of Boston. All others will be tested at an outside facility arranged by CHA.
