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 student recruitment. FPMA has set a goal of getting 10% of our member podiatrists signed up as DPM Mentors (we thank those of you who have signed up already!). Please get involved in this very worthwhile program!
