Kaiser North Bay Consortium at Vallejo, Vacaville, Santa Rosa, and San Rafael
The Podiatric Surgery program at Kaiser Hospital Vallejo is structured as a consortium model where our residents train not only at Kaiser Vallejo but also at the Kaiser Permanente medical centers in Vacaville, San Rafael and Santa Rosa. We select three residents per year for the PM&S 36 with Added Credential program. First year rotations are completed at Kaiser Vallejo and Vacaville except for two months of outside rotations at San Francisco General Hospital Plastic Surgery Service and Highland Hospital Emergency Room. The second and third years of training consist of rotating four month podiatric surgery blocks at each of the three medical centers. Kaiser Vallejo recently split into two medical centers with the second hospital located in nearby Vacaville, CA.
We provide high level training in every area of podiatric medicine and surgery with emphasis on continuity of care, a dedication to the principles of evidence based medicine and contribution to the scientific literature. Podiatric Surgeons in Northern California Kaiser are fully integrated into the medical community and residency training benefits from this high level of parity. In addition Kaiser Permanente provides a fully intergrated Electronic Medical Record so residents train with the most advanced Information Technology available.
We have a clerkship program for fourth year students but it is not required for application to the residency. We do require applicants to be new graduates with a minimum 3.25 GPA. Make sure to check out the links to Our Residents and Our Faculty.
