Residency Development

How to Start a Residency Program

The goal of this webpage is to provide all pertinent information and documents related to residency development to podiatric physicians who are interested in beginning a residency program or expanding an existing residency program.

The documents associated with the residency development/expansion process are important to review. KSUCPM has tried to make it easier to locate and navigate these documents by providing a comprehensive list of them below. Links to these documents have been provided for your convenience.

If you're just starting out we recommend reviewing the CPME 320 and CPME 330 documents. You may also find it helpful to review the Application for Provisional Approval (CPME 309).

If you have any questions or concerns regarding the information, please contact the AACPM directly at:
