Student Profiles

APMA is following the journey of nine members of the class of 2018 as they work to earn their doctor of podiatric medicine (DPM) degrees. What drives them? What obstacles do they face, and how will they overcome them? What do they worry about? How are they handling the transition from classroom to clerkship? What do they do to unwind? What is happening today that will mold the average APMA member 25 years from now?

The individuals chosen for this project represent a broad spectrum of backgrounds and experiences, but the journey that each took up to this point now places them on the same road toward becoming tomorrow’s podiatrist.
