The NYC Health + Hospitals/Coney Podiatric Medicine and Surgical Residency (PMSR) is a three year graduate training program approved by the Council of Podiatric Medical Education (CPME) under the direction of Yury Rotshteyn, DPM. We select graduates of recognized School of Podiatric Medicine and accredited to accept three residents each year, for a total of nine residents. This program is well-rounded, highly-structured and designed for the mature responsible, self-disciplined & self-motivated resident.
The rotational structure is designed with an increasing progression of responsibility toward patients and decision making in podiatric surgery and include advancing didactic study.
During the PGY-I and the first 6 months of PGY-II residents are provided a strong educational foundation in medicine & surgery. While on non-Podiatry medical & surgical rotations (e.g., internal medicine, general surgery, vascular surgery, etc.), our residents function as integral team members. The rotations of the residency include: podiatric surgery, clinical podiatric medicine, general surgery, internal medicine, anesthesiology, radiology, emergency medicine, vascular surgery, plastic surgery, neurology, anesthesia, and infectious disease.
Our purpose is to fulfill the educational requirements for each individual graduate’s surgical competency. It is also the purpose of this residency program to emphasize the humanistic quality for patient care and needs.

All applicants to the residency program are encouraged to at least visit the program.
