About the Conference
Each year, members of the nationwide podiatric residency education community come together for three days of hands-on education, networking and camaraderie at the PRESENT Podiatric Residency Education Summits. Held in Teaneck, NJ for the east coast programs, and Oak Brook Hills just outside of Chicago for the midwest and western programs, the PRESENT Podiatric Residency Education Summits are the best opportunities each year for residents, residency directors, attending podiatrists, and practicing podiatrists to get out of their silos and come together to share and learn. Renowned Conference Chairman Harold Schoenhaus, DPM and his Co-Chairmen Robert Frykberg, DPM, MPH, Matthew Garoufalis, DPM, and Lowell Weil, Jr, DPM, MBA work year round to create the most dynamic academic program for this unique community. Attendees enjoy a vibrant lecture program and hands-on workshops featuring the latest technologies driving today’s high tech podiatric practice. This year, these conferences will include a special focus on practice management. The events culminate each year in the exciting Residency Rumble academic game show, a competitive yet fun real live game show that residents compete in with their fellow residents.
