Jason Kelty

Email:  jasonkelty@gmail.com

Medical School: Kent State University College of Podiatric Medicine

Undergraduate College: Xavier Unversity

Hometown: Wadsworth, OH

Personal Info: I am a big fan of Cleveland sports, Ohio State football and Xavier basketball. I also enjoy jogging, playing basketball and tennis, reading, and spending time with family and friends.

Why this Program? It's a grossly overused term, but this program truly provides its residents with a very well rounded podiatric education. With the private office experience, daily group rounds, weekly didactic sessions, monthly journal club, excellent outside rotations and robust surgical exposure, this is a program that produces podiatrists who are more than prepared to practice successfully.

Medical School: Kent State University College of Podiatric Medicine, Class of 2013

Undergraduate College: Wayne State University

Hometown: West Bloomfield, Michigan

Podiatric Specialty: Sports Medicine, Surgery

Personal Info: Born and raised in the suburbs of Detroit, Michigan, I am the oldest of 3 children and the first to become a physician in my family. I gravitated towards podiatry after many sprained ankles playing soccer growing up.  I am a big Detroit sports fan and in my free time, I enjoy watching/playing sports, working out, movies, ping pong, and heading home to see family and friends.

Why this program? This program seemed to be a perfect fit. Sisters of Charity Hospital provides its residents the resources to become well-rounded clinicians and surgeons. With a resident-run clinic and broad surgical experience, I believe this program will prepare me for the real world. The attending physicians are always ready and willing to teach, giving me a unique insight to their trained eye. In addition, journal clubs and weekly medicine lectures allow the residents to expand their knowledge in all fields of medicine.

Medical School: The Ohio College of Podiatric Medicine, Class of 2012

Undergraduate College: Indiana University, Purdue University, Fort Wayne, Indiana

Hometown: Fort Wayne, Indiana

Podiatric Specialty: General Podiatry

Personal Info: Growing up in the midwest, I became very passionate about traveling and exploring the outside world. I am from a large Lebanese family with many relatives in the healthcare field and chose to follow in my sister's footsteps to become a podiatrist. I am a huge Colt's fan. I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, going to movies, playing tennis, or just sitting outside by a nice fire at the lake.

Why this Program? Upon my many visits to Sisters of Charity Hospital, I was able to experience the interaction between the doctors and the residents. They showed great knowledge, dedication, and respect not only to their patients but their residents too. I found Sisters to have the trifecta that I was looking for in a program. It is well rounded in academics, surgical skills, and clinical assessment. Something I found unique to the program is the resident-run clinic and how well it prepares its residents for their future career.
