Saint Francis Hospital and Medical Center offers a monthly podiatric externship. Students interact with residents and attendings in hospital and clinical setting. The externship offers hands on student participation in clinical work in our Gengras Clinic and Wound Care Center as well as mandatory participation in our academic schedule. Academics range from board and case review, journal club, and monthly meeting. The remainder of the student’s time at Saint Francis is spent in the operating room and performing inpatient work at the hospital.

Optional student housing with a resident is available. Majority of the residents live in the hospital provided subsidized housing across the street from SFH. Please contact Phyllis Morrow for details and availability.
