APMA’s Continuing Education Mission Statement
The American Podiatric Medical Association (APMA) advances and advocates for the profession of podiatric medicine and surgery for the benefit of its members and the public. To this end, APMA offers continuing education opportunities for podiatric physicians to meet their licensing requirements, to maintain and expand their knowledge, to provide optimum patient care, and to receive updates on advances in foot and ankle care. These educational opportunities may include face-to-face, web/ computer-based, and audio/video recorded continuing education activities.
No commercial interest provided financial support for this continuing education activity.
Doctors of Podiatric Medicine
APMA is approved by the Council on Podiatric Medical Education (CPME) as a provider of continuing education in podiatric medicine. APMA has approved each of the courses above for 1.0 continuing education contact hours (CECH). Podiatric physicians are responsible for reporting their attendance to all appropriate boards and agencies requiring continuing education. Credits may be registered with state boards by providing them with a copy of your CECH certificate.
Recorded Program Attendees
In accordance with the requirements of CPME, attendees of the CECH eligible recorded sessions must take and pass an assessment at the end of any sessions they purchase and watch for attendance verification purposes. A passing score is 60 percent. Attendees will be able to take the assessment as many times as required but will have to pass the test before a certificate can be generated and downloaded.
