Another Perspective On The Podiatric Residency Crisis

Start Page: 81
By John H. McCord, DPM

   For now, the schools need to create a fifth clinical year for their graduates who do not match. That is how podiatric residencies originated. The schools also need to cut their class sizes so we do not have this problem every year. It is hard enough to recruit new students and our current mess could kill the profession.

   Dr. McCord retired in December 2008 from practice at the Centralia Medical Center in Centralia, Wash.
