He then took his residency at Department of Veterans Affair’s Loma Linda Healthcare System in Ohio as part of three-year program designed to produce a podiatric surgical specialist who is an expert in the recognition and management of all foot and ankle conditions. Brayton continued his training by pursuing a fellowship at UFAI.
