“I am honored to serve as ABPM President this year,” said Dr. DellaCorte.  “ABPM has made great strides underscoring the importance of obtaining certification, especially for residents who can become ABPM certified within one year of completing their three year, CPME-approved, residency. I want to continue this outreach as this is becoming increasingly important for access privileges and insurance paneling.”

Michael DellaCorte, DPM has been in practice for over 30 years; he certified with the ABPM in 1993, and has been a member of the ABPM Board of Directors since 2008. He is the Residency Program Director at Forest Hills Hospital, a member of the North Shore LIJ Health System, and a ProHealth Care Partner specializing in podiatric surgery and diabetic limb salvage.
