Applicants to the Podiatric Surgery program at MedStar Washington Hospital Center must apply through the Centralized Application Service for Podiatric Residencies (CASPR). Once received, the application review committee reviews the materials. Applications that are selected for an interview are forwarded to the residency interview committee.
This committee interviews candidates at the CRIP site. Applicants are then ranked and matched by the Council on Podiatric Medical Education. Matched candidates are notified on the official match date by the CASPR organization.
We encourage student visitation during the year, and we strongly encourage interested students to extern at the hospital for a month. Although neither of these activities is required in order to be considered for a residency position, it is always helpful to have had some prior exposure to the hospital before applying.
