Residency training in 2015, for many practicing podiatrists, is like staring through a looking glass. The comprehensive training you receive now is so beyond what was even offered 10 to 15 years ago. This is something to be proud of!  But our residency and even fellowship training isn’t enough. We need to take the clinical skills learned and apply them, but how?  By applying for and passing your board examinations.

Eighty percent of the work you will do in private practice is reflected in your certification with the American Board of Podiatric Medicine. It is critical to put all your training to use and make YOUR transition into private practice smooth by obtaining your ABPM certification now. The good news?  ABPM has access to your residency resource logs, which if logged correctly during your credentialed three year residency program, will give you a streamlined pathway to certification.
