Attaining a podiatric fellowship in the U.S.
Our Hallux Magazine editors got a chance to interview current directors, current fellows, and past fellows to ask them about their experience in their chosen fellowship program. They asked hard-hitting questions for our readers to understand what it takes to take an extra year of fellowship training. You may be asking, “Podiatry is already specific already, why would I want to do an extra year?” This Special Edition titled ‘the fellows’ focuses on just that. Why do a fellowship, how difficult is it, and what do you gain from it?
We thank our editors Samantha Williams, Timothy Cheung, Josephine Wu, Joshua Ekladios, and Rafay Qureshi for this special edition. A total of 10 fellows were interviewed in this special edition. Click on a name below to discover about each fellowship program.
