On Friday, July 15, APMA responded to Draft II CPME 320—Standards and Requirements for Approval of Podiatric Medicine and Surgery Residencies. APMA focused its comments on the following:

  • CPME needs to address the lack of coding education early on in a DPM’s career. APMA recommended CPME explicitly require coding education in Requirement 6.7, which addresses the weekly didactic education sessions residency programs are required to offer.
  • APMA recommended that the American Board of Podiatric Medicine (ABPM) and the American Board of Foot and Ankle Surgery (ABFAS) use a unified exam with elements from both boards to reduce program expense.
  • APMA recommended that CPME maintain the current number of biomechanical exam Minimum Activity Volume (MAV) at 75.
