Wound Care Center
Residents work with board-certified physicians to care for patients at the Christiana Care Wound Care Center on the Riverside Campus. Residents learn a multi-disciplinary approach to wound management, working closely with specialists in podiatric medicine, as well as family practice; internal medicine; vascular, plastic, and general surgery; orthopedics; and infectious disease.
Diverse training experience
Outside of the two main hospitals, the Podiatric Medicine and Surgery residents train at several additional facilities, most frequently at the Roxana Cannon Arsht Surgicenter on the Wilmington Hospital campus. The RCA Surgicenter is an impressive, well-staffed outpatient surgery facility. The PMSR/RRA residents also assist podiatric physicians in surgeries at several affiliated sites such as St. Francis Hospital, Glasgow Medical Center, Delaware Outpatient Center for Surgery (DOCS), Center for Advanced Surgical Arts (CASA), and Jennersville Regional Hospital, to gain a more diverse surgical experience. During second year, residents participate in a two-month rotation at the Rubin Institute for Advanced Orthopedics in Baltimore, Maryland.
