The author presents information related to the structures of medical and podiatric residency training and statistical information regarding entry level residency positions in approved podiatric residency programs. The results of surveys of residency directors (1989 and 1990) and the residency community of interest (1990) conducted by the Council on Podiatric Medical Education are reported. Specific findings from the surveys indicated the desirability of establishing training sequences consisting of rotating podiatric residencies followed by specialty training programs but identified significant difficulties related to implementation.
