Advanced Podiatric Training
Lourdes sponsors a residency program for
Podiatric medicine, providing Doctors of Podiatric Medicine (DPM)
the opportunity to advance their clinical skills under the
supervision of one of the most prominent podiatrists in the field,
Dr. Guido LaPorta.
Approved by the Council on Podiatric Medical Education, this
limb reconstruction program provides comprehensive training in all
aspects of foot and ankle surgery, podiatric medicine and wound
care, and particular training in external fixation.
Externship positions are available and encouraged.
The curriculum encompasses current podiatric office and
hospital-based medicine practice, wound care, limb salvage, trauma,
and elective surgery with an emphasis
on reconstructive forefoot and rearfoot surgery.
Residents will complete a cadaver
workshop as part of their training. In addition to Wound Care
Center, peri-operative consults and private office experiences,
residents are responsible for in-house patient management as well
as staffing and managing the Primary Care Network Foot Clinic.
The rotation schedule provides residents with experience in a
core of medicine rotations as well as general, vascular, plastic,
and orthopedic trauma surgery. The residency training program
offers a well-developed curriculum with affiliations at several
local hospitals, medical centers, and outpatient surgery centers.
Residents easily achieve surgical number completion.
Select residents will have the opportunity to attend a
prestigious three-month rotation focusing on limb deformity
correction at the Rubin Institute for Advanced Orthopedics at Sinai
Hospital in Baltimore, MD.

Binghamton, New York
Lourdes is located in the culturally-rich university town of
Binghamton, 2.5 hours from NYC, 3 hours from Philadelphia, and 1.5
hours from Syracuse. Whatever the season, there is much to see and
do in Greater Binghamton. Situated where the Susquehanna and
Chenango Rivers meet, you peer out over the numerous bridges and
delight in the outstanding architecture, with the backdrop of the
signature rolling hills.
Greater Binghamton has much to offer the tourist and even more
to offer the resident. In addition to outstanding theater, opera,
and a gallery scene, Binghamton is home to minor league baseball,
the Binghamton Mets, and the AHL Binghamton Senators. As the
birthplace to IBM, large and small businesses alike have found a
home in Greater Binghamton. Serviced by Binghamton Regional Airport
and with excellent access to major routes, Binghamton is easily
accessible from any direction.

residency program or if you are interested in visiting or
