The Council on Podiatric Medical Education’s Nominating Committee is seeking applications for four at-large and two public CPME positions. CPME will hold a closed ballot election to fill the positions at its October 2019 meeting. Each position is for a three-year term renewable up to three consecutive terms. Applications received after June 15 will not be considered.

The council asks each applicant to describe in writing how he or she satisfies at least two of the following five eligibility requirements:

  • Has been active for a period of at least two years as a director of an approved podiatric residency program.
  • Has been active for a period of at least two years as an academic administrator or a full‑time faculty member at an accredited college of podiatric medicine or an accredited medical institution.
  • Has demonstrated leadership within the profession or distinguished him- or herself as a practitioner.
  • Has served actively on one of the council's committees for a minimum of one full term.
  • Has served on at least three CPME on‑site evaluation teams to colleges of podiatric medicine, residency programs, or continuing education programs.

The applicant also is expected to demonstrate qualifications and experience in at least one of the following areas of need:

  • A private practice podiatric physician who is involved in residency education and possesses experience with the function of the council, such as service as a CPME on-site evaluator or member of a standing or ad hoc committee of the council.
  • A faculty member at an accredited college of podiatric medicine who:
    • provides podiatric education at the college or an affiliated institution; and
    • has an active relationship with the college and its faculty.
  • To fill the need for the public member positions, an individual must not have a significant relationship (either direct or indirect) with podiatric medical organizations or podiatric medical educational institutions. These individuals shall have no vested interest in or financial relationship to the podiatric medical profession.

In addition to the requirements outlined above, the candidate is encouraged to describe other podiatric and non-podiatric experiences he or she has had that strengthen the submission.

Individuals seeking election to the council must submit a curriculum vitae and an application letter that addresses both the requirements and the area of need to: CPME Director, 9312 Old Georgetown Road, Bethesda, MD 20814, or Heather M. Stagliano, DHSc, no later than June 15.
