The 2016 PRESENT Residency Education Summit Midwest 2016 took place outside Chicago this weekend and hosted over 200 members of the residency education community. Chairman Harold Schoenhaus, DPM, Co-chairmen Robert Frykberg, DPM, MPH, Matthew Garoufalis, DPM, CWS, Paramjit “Romi” Chopra, MD and Guido LaPorta, DPM, MS, put together an invaluable curriculum of lectures on topics from surgery to wound care to biomechanics to Life Skills lectures to help young podiatrists get started in practice. Four Hands-on Workshops overflowed with attendees and the Exhibit and Lecture Halls were packed with residents along with their program directors and attendings.
