Martin Foot and Ankle has developed a new Fellowship program to provide advanced training to Doctors who have completed a 3-year Podiatric surgical residency. The Fellowship consists of an intensive 12-month surgical and clinical based practice. The Fellow is actively integrated within Martin Foot and Ankle to practice under the guidance of the Fellowship Director, Dr. Michael Younes, and other Physicians of Martin Foot and Ankle. The Fellow will be present in the operating room to learn advanced surgical techniques from the varied perspective of different attending Physicians, maximizing their surgical skills.
The Fellowship program is multifaceted with clinical, didactic, and surgical exposure. From a clinical perspective, the Fellow will be seeing their own patients in the office with the ability to confer with the attending Physician to discuss, review and make recommendations to the patient. Didactics involve monthly journal reviews with the Physicians and lecturing at the local, state and national level. Surgical education will include enhanced exposure to the latest techniques available in the practice of Podiatry.
Under the guidelines of our accrediting board, The American College of Foot and Ankle Surgeons (ACFAS), Martin Foot and Ankle will start this program by offering one Fellowship. Our volume of surgical cases would allow us to add other Fellowship opportunities in the future.
