There is a serious need to get the word out to young people about the Podiatric profession. The issue of low podiatric student enrollment needs to be addressed and who would be a better group to "get the word out" about becoming a podiatrist than actual podiatrists?
Listed below are links to information concerning mentoring students that are considering a career in podiatry as well as student recruitment. FPMA has set a goal of getting 10% of our member podiatrists signed up with the DPM Mentors Network (we thank those of you who have signed up already!). The DPM Mentors Network matches students with podiatric physicians who practice near where they live or go to school. DPM mentors are also used as a resource for speaking requests to get the word out to students who might have an interest in pursuing podiatry as a career. Please get involved in this very worthwhile program!
