Podiatric Medicine - How to Apply
What are the application requirements?
The Podiatric Surgical Residency Program is open to all candidates from podiatry colleges accredited by the CPME. Applications for the residency program are only accepted through the Centralized Application Service for Podiatric Residencies (CASPR). This service is sponsored by the American Association of Colleges of Podiatric Medicine (AACPM). The AACPM will submit the following documents to the applicant’s choice of residency program(s): a residency application, three letters of reference, official transcripts, clinical evaluations, and a personal statement. For additional information on CASPR and an application, please visit the AACPM website.
Candidates are expected to pass the NBPME Part I, Part II and Part III. These exams are required to obtain a Pennsylvania Podiatric Medical License, which is required at the start of all Podiatric Medical and Surgical Residency Programs in Pennsylvania.
We recommend program visitation during the year for interested students who did not have an opportunity to do a clerkship with the residency program. Interviews for the program will be conducted each year at the CRIP. It is always helpful to be familiar with the residency program before applying.
Eligibility & Selection

In addition, Podiatry residents must meet all Pennsylvania State Board of Podiatry licensure requirements for entrance into the Einstein residency program.
Podiatry graduates who are not US citizens must possess an appropriate work visa or permanent residence status (green card).
