Additional recommended knowledge
APMA's Educational Foundation, established in 1959, is dedicated to advancing the growth and stability of podiatric medicine through student scholarships and increasing nationwide awareness of foot and ankle health.
APMA provides foot health information to the public in a number of ways, including through its toll free number, l-800-FOOTCARE. There are more than three dozen different foot health brochures available at no charge. APMA has also initiated an Internet web site to provide information to the public at www.apma.org.
Doctors of Podiatric Medicine are physicians and surgeons who practice on the lower extremities, primarily on feet and ankles. The preparatory education of most DPMs includes four years of undergraduate work, followed by four years in an accredited podiatric medical school, followed by a residency.
APMA's national headquarters is located in Maryland. Its staff of 57 professionals are dedicated to promoting foot and ankle health, to member service, and to professional excellence.
MISSION STATEMENT: APMA advances and advocates for the profession of podiatric medicine and surgery for the benefit of its members and the public.
OVERARCHING GOAL OF THE STRATEGIC PLAN: To insure that APMA continues to be the leading professional organization and unifying force in the field of podiatric medicine and surgery.
