academic medicine while also providing the
fellow the opportunity to acquire the necessary skills for statistical analysis and research
design. The fellow enjoys six months of dedicated, protected time to conduct research.
This new program takes advantage of the
unique background and training of our podiatric physicians, our relationship with MEND,
the Comprehensive Diabetes Center, and the
University of Michigan Wound Care Clinic.
As a clinician, the fellow will develop
competence in treating a challenging patient
population. As an educator, the fellow may
choose to stay in academic medicine to share
the unique skills and experience gained from
the fellowship and help to address the shortage of these types of podiatric clinicians. As
a researcher, the fellow will endeavor to be a
lifelong contributor to the medical literature.
As a manager, the fellow will develop organizational skills needed to conduct a clinical
and research career. And as a humanitarian,
the fellow will gain compassion and humility
in patient care.

WHAT ARE SOME KEY ASPECTS OF
THIS FELLOWSHIP?
While our focus is on limb preservation, we
will expose the fellow to a full spectrum of
lower extremity pathology in clinic. Fellows will
be able to see their own patients in the Fellows' Clinic. Some of the key areas include:
* Neuropathy: We have the unique opportunity for the fellow to train for two to
four weeks with neurologists who are the
world's leading experts in neuropathy. As

*

*

many podiatrists learn shortly after residency, we are on the front lines of treating
painful peripheral neuropathy. While we
get some exposure to neuropathy in residency, it is our goal to provide our fellows
the additional training needed to be an
expert in the field of peripheral neuropathy. If we are going to treat it, we should
be the experts.
Limb Salvage: In addition to obtaining
experience in clinical and surgical podiatry, our fellows will get the chance to spend
time with expert pedorthists and orthotists
fabricating and adjusting braces and
orthotic devices, another area in which
some recent residency graduates may
need further training. Further, the fellow
can also work with our infectious disease
and vascular specialists on our population
at risk for limb loss.
Research and Teaching: This fellowship
will likely be the only time in the fellow's
career that he or she has the opportunity
to write and conduct research with the
benefit of six months of dedicated, protected time. Our research directors are
James Wrobel, DPM, a leading podiatric
author, and Rodica Busui, MD, an endocrinologist and the leading international
expert on the mechanisms of diabetic
complications, particularly of diabetic
peripheral neuropathy and cardiovascular
autonomic neuropathy. The University of
Michigan has nearly limitless support for
those who desire to publish their work.
Researchers at University of Michigan have

In as little as six months, your research could appear in an issue of the Journal of
the American Podiatric Medical Association (JAPMA). To learn more, visit www.

access to world-class facilities and services,
comprehensive grant administration support, and a variety of other resources. Our
division, and indeed our entire university,
provides opportunities to collaborate with
world-class faculty on research projects.
Our faculty and fellows host trainees from
family medicine, internal medicine, and
endocrinology who rotate through the
Podiatry section. The fellowship affords an
excellent opportunity to hone teaching skills.

HOW ARE CANDIDATES SELECTED?
WHAT DO YOU LOOK FOR?
While we are generally recruiting recent and
current residents, we are open to accepting
applications from anyone interested in a
career in academic medicine. Ideally, we are
looking for someone who desires a lifelong
career in clinical medicine, surgery, teaching,
and research.

WHAT ABOUT YOUR CURRENT FELLOWS?
Our first fellow came to us from Montefiore
Mount Vernon Hospital in New York for the
2016-18 academic years. Sari Priesand,
DPM, has helped us expand our clinic times
and brought new ideas for research topics to
our program. "This fellowship has provided
me excellent opportunities to further develop
my skills within the area of inpatient and
outpatient podiatric care," Dr. Priesand said.
"I also have dedicated time to perform my
research, which is an invaluable asset to
my career."
In July, we will be welcoming Garneisha
Torrence, DPM, from the Veterans Affairs
Puget Sound Health Care System in Washington. We look forward to Dr. Torrence
getting settled with us and her bright addition
to our program.
