Message from Chief Resident, Darrell Hoppes, D.P.M.
There is an adage that says, "Residency
is a marathon not a sprint." The Podiatry Residency Program at Millcreek Community Hospital
has allowed the opportunity to practice this wise saying to the fullest extent. It has afforded a
great level of responsibility, experience and professionalism that is demanded of the current
Podiatric Physician. The Erie area offers the full spectrum of medical and surgical training that
surpasses even the goals set out by the CPME. Our tenure has fallen during a period of more
Residency positions available than students graduating from the eight current Schools of Podiatry,
a trend currently found across many other specialties of medicine. Within two years, the
pendulum swings in the other direction as more students require additional Residency slots. With
momentum gained from our sponsoring institution and instructors, we have been keeping "up to
pace" as we run through the "valley" of low student pools and continue on to
complete the race making our Residency the best it can be at the same time. At the finish line, we
will certainly say that we are proud of the invaluable skills we have acquired through the
Millcreek Community Hospital's Podiatric Surgery Program.
