Mission Statement: FPMA strives to promote Podiatric Physicians as the preferred providers of Medicine and Surgery of the Foot, Ankle, & Lower Extremity in the State of Florida and elevate public knowledge of Podiatric Medicine and Surgery at all levels throughout the state.
Vision: To be recognized as the leading voice and pre-eminent resource for the Podiatric Profession in the State of Florida.
Podiatric Physicians who are unable to attend the FPMA Science and Management Symposium (SAM) held in Orlando, Florida every year in January can earn some of their required CECH with FPMA home study courses.
When considering home study courses, please keep in mind the guidelines for CECH as established by the Florida Board of Podiatric Medicine:
◊ 1 hour Laws and Rules - Can only be used one time per biennium and cannot be counted again as part of scientific hours.
◊ 1 hour AIDS - One hour required only in the initial biennium and first renewal biennium, not required thereafter per biennium.
◊ 2 hours Medical Errors - Can only be used one time per biennium.
◊ 1 hour Risk Management - Can use any RM hours acquired over the one required hour as Practice Management, if you do not already have a maximum three hours of Practice Management allowed per biennium.
Note: Practice Management is NOT required - only three hours of Practice Management may be counted per biennium.
