KY Podiatric Externship Program

Kentucky Podiatric Externship Program

The Podiatric Externship is sponsored by Norton Audubon Hospital. Room and board are provided to all externs at no cost. Externs will need transportation for traveling to private offices and various hospital and surgery center locations.

Goals and Objectives and responsibilities

Our goal is to provide both surgical and nonsurgical activities in a structured environment that will help strengthen podiatric medical students’ knowledge of podiatric medicine and surgery. We also provide an externship manual to assist in training. We ask that each extern remain integrally involved during the externship. Externs will rotate with a variety of affiliated podiatric and orthopaedic physicians in surgery and in private offices. Externs are responsible for assisting with pre-, peri-, and postoperative management of patients. Externs also will attend all didactic events. They are required to lead a PowerPoint presentation for journal club, as well as participate in case discussions.

Externship application process and requirements

  • Externs must complete the required Universal Externship/ Clerkship application forms provided by the college’s graduate education placement office
  • Externs must maintain a cumulative minimum GPA of 3.0

Notification of externships

Those chosen for externships will be notified by mail, e-mail or phone.
