The applicants to the program in podiatry at the Washington
Hospital Center must apply through the C.A.S.P.R. process. Once
received, a committee designated as the application review
committee reviews the materials. After that, applications that
are selected for an interview are forwarded on to the residency
It is this committee that actually meets the candidates for the
interview at the C.R.I.P. site. From there, the applicants are
"ranked", and the process continues through the match as designed
by the Council on Podiatric Medical Education.
The candidates that have been matched are notified on the
official match date by the C.A.S.P.R. 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.
