The Medical Sciences curriculum consists of approximately twenty courses and clerkships that extend from the second through the fourth years of study. Within this sequence, identifiable subsets for physical diagnosis, medical imaging, podiatric medicine, general medicine, and emergency medicine are included. Classroom and patient care experiences are arranged hierarchically to provide orderly, increased levels of challenge regardless of setting: the Foot Center of New York or our multiple hospital affiliates.

The Department of Medical Sciences embraces every available technological advance in delivering this curriculum, including down loadable class lectures. The student receives these materials from a talented, well-seasoned, highly qualified faculty from the New York College of Podiatric Medicine as well as local medical schools.

DEPARTMENT OF ORTHOPEDICS & PEDIATRICS


Loretta Logan, DPM, MPH
Associate Professor & Chair

Mission
The mission of the Department of Orthopedic and Pediatric Sciences is to produce a podiatric student with the knowledge and skills in orthopedics; pediatrics; and physical medicine and rehabilitation necessary for entry into a post -graduate training program. After completing the didactic and clinical courses in the department, each student should a have a working knowledge of how to effectively evaluatediagnose and treat podiatric pathology in each of the department sections. Our mission has the foresight of presenting for post-graduate training students who will be further educated to become competent podiatric physicians.

Section Ė Orthopedic Science
The Orthopedics section of the department of Orthopedic and Pediatric Sciences provides intense didactic and clinical training in functional anatomy of the lower extremity; structure and function of the foot and ankle joints; normal and abnormal function of the foot joint and leg during gait; and developmental and congenital problems of the musculoskeletal system of the lower extremity. In addition to the didactic courses, which lay the groundwork for a sound education in Biomechanics and Functional Orthopedics, participation in Grand Rounds, research endeavors and various Continuing Medical Education seminars greatly enhance learning amongst both students and faculty. Students make use of their didactic training by entering into an orthopedics clinical clerkship in their third year. The clerkship is a 12-week course that affords students the opportunity to put their didactic knowledge into practice under the guidance of our esteemed and dedicated faculty. Patients are seen at our affiliated Foot Center of New York and affiliated hospitals. With supervised evaluation and treatment of adult patients with lower extremity orthopedic, biomechanical, and postural pathology, podiatric students are able to develop and hone skills that prepare them for entry into a podiatric residency program.

Section Ė Pediatric Science
The Pediatrics section of the Department of Orthopedic and Pediatric Sciences functions to expose the podiatric student to normal growth and development of children, with emphasis placed on the lower extremity. Tools to recognize, assess and treat lower extremity pathology that may be systemic, dermatologic, neurologic, or orthopedic in nature are presented in detail. In addition, issues of well health such as immunizations, preventive medicine and recognizing and reporting child abuse are covered extensively. Outside of the usual lecture format, Grand Rounds, guest lecturers, research opportunities, and participation in Continuing Medical Education seminars promote enhancement of overall learning in pediatrics by both students and faculty. The third-year clinical clerkship is an important enhancement to didactic education in pediatrics. The clinic allows exposure to a myriad of lower extremity pathology in children during all phases of childhood development. Students see patients both at the Foot Center of New York and affiliated hospitals. Our pediatric faculty are highly respected educators and doctors of podiatric medicine. Under their guidance, students are presented with the skills to effectively evaluate, diagnosis, and treat pediatric pathology of the lower extremity.

Section Ė Physical and Rehabilitation Medicine
The Physical and Rehabilitation Medicine section of the Department of Orthopedic and Pediatric Sciences serves to introduce students to the various physical therapy modalities and techniques used by the podiatric profession in offices, clinics, and hospital settings. Knowledge gained from the didactic lectures is carried over to the Physical and Rehabilitation Medicine Clinical Clerkship. Students are guided under supervision to develop the manual skills needed to effectively provide care to patients requiring rehabilitation.

Email: kjules@nycpm.edu


The Department of Surgical Sciences is responsible for presenting and teaching didactic knowledge for clinical entities that are managed surgically. The didactic surgical courses begin in the second year to provide a knowledge base prior to clinical training in the third year. Department members also provide surgical care for the patients of the Foot Center of New York, affiliated hospitals, with the responsibility for clinical surgical education of the students, residents and post-doctoral fellows who rotate through the department. In addition, faculty members of the department participate in college-sponsored Continuing Medical Education Seminars and conducting research of a surgical nature.
The mission of the department is to produce an entry level Doctor of Podiatric Medicine, who has attained a firm knowledge base and understanding of the surgical procedures utilized to treat deformities and afflictions of the foot and ankle. The graduating Doctor of Podiatric Medicine will have attained competency in Operating Room (OR) protocol, sterile technique and will have obtained the knowledge base for a post-graduate training program.

Community Health and Medicine addresses itself to the resolution of many of the most pressing health and medical needs. It requires a complex interaction of a variety of health and social welfare activities that are present in the community. The course is directed toward the development of the student's understanding of the role of the practitioner-podiatrist in this interaction. It provides the basis for general prevention of the diseases to improve the quality of life in the community.
