Meet ABPM Director, Stephen Geller, DPM
Dr. Geller has been a Diplomate of the ABPM since 1997, and a board director since 2015. He currently serves on the ABPM Examination Committee as sub-section Chair for the Qualification examination, and has been a committee member since 2008. In fact, the ABPM App originated from the qualification examination committee under Dr. Geller, when a style guide and item writing manual were created for consistency in our examination processes. Dr Geller’s hard work with ABPM is also highlighted in the new pathology specific biomechanical exam templates now available through ABPM.
“I am proud of the accomplishments ABPM has made in a short time. The importance of medicine in daily practice cannot be emphasized enough. In my opinion, Podiatrists need to be the best physicians in the hospital. I think it’s part of our training to listen carefully and examine thoroughly, putting us in a position to make diagnoses before other physicians get to see the patient. “
Dr. Geller has also served as an ABPM representative to the Council on Podiatric Medical Education (CPME) Residency Review Committee (RRC) for two terms, remaining as an at-large member of the RRC. He is an ABPM representative to the Collaborative Residency Evaluator Committee (CREC) and is a residency program evaluator for the ABPM, ABFAS, and CPME. Dr. Geller holds clinical appointments at many of the colleges of podiatric medicine and is a past president of the Arizona Podiatric Medical Association. Dr. Geller earned his Master’s Degree in Medical Education and completed a 13-year tenure as the founding Director of Podiatric Medication Education at Maricopa Medical Center in Phoenix, AZ. His clinical practice has been recognized in Phoenix Magazine’s “Top Docs”, as well as one of “America’s Top Podiatrists” by the American Research Council.
