Dr. Austin Jr's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Austin Jr "Dr. Austin has lived in the Bay Area since 1996 when he began his Graduate Education at the California College of Podiatric Medicine in San Francisco. He attended the University of Oregon. The coursework which would earn him a Bachelor of Science in Biology also fulfilled pre-med requirements and a minor in Spanish. While at the University of Oregon, Dr. Austin participated in Neuroscience Research contributing to a publication in the Journal of Developmental Biology. Research was also part of his Graduate Education, while studying melatonin administration in diabetic rats. After earning his Doctorate in Podiatric Medicine with honors, his Post-graduate education took him to Los Angeles County/University of Southern California Medical Center for one year of residency in primary podiatric medicine. The next two years of residency brought Dr. Austin back to the Bay Area where he completed his Podiatric Surgical Residency Training at Kaiser Santa Clara. Several specific aspects of surgical podiatry became of special interest, including working with children to correct club foot deformity, diabetic foot care, and foot and ankle trauma."
