Program Eligibility & Requirements
To ensure the safety of our patients and employees as a condition of employment, clinical privileges or program participation, Gundersen Health System (GHS) requires all staff to be fully vaccinated as defined by Employee Health Services for COVID-19 regardless of work location. In addition, all non-employee personnel, volunteers, residents, fellows, trainees, clinical and non-clinical contracted staff, students, researchers, temporary workers, contractors, and vendors, at any worksite or remote location, regardless of clinical responsibility or patient contact, are required to comply.
We only accept residents who have gone through a one-month externship with us in their fourth year as a podiatric medical student. They can contact their externship office at the college for an application. All externs who rotate with us during their fourth year are considered for ranking during the match process. Contact the externship office at your college for a standard CASPR externship application. No additional application or information is necessary to apply for the residency; we use all the information provided through your externship application. We then go through the CASPR match to choose our resident.
Generally, we will conduct formal interviews only with those students who have not yet externed with us prior to the rankings due date each year. We choose two residents per year.
