Mandatory Courses Offered by FPMA

 

Podiatric Physicians who are unable to attend the FPMA Science and Management Symposium (SAM) held in the Orlando, Florida area every year in January, or the FPMA Summer Conference, can earn some of their required continuing education contact hours (CECH) by successfully completing individual FPMA mandatory courses.

The Florida Podiatric Medical Association is approved by the Council on Podiatric Medical Education as a provider of continuing education in podiatric medicine. FPMA offers the following CECH courses for Podiatric Physicians:

  • Medical Errors - The Florida Podiatric Medical Association has approved this activity for a maximum of 2.0 continuing education contact hours.
  • Laws & Rules - The Florida Podiatric Medical Association has approved this activity for a maximum of 1.0 continuing education contact hour.
Please Note: FPMA is currently in the process of creating online versions of both the Medical Errors and Laws & Rules courses. Links to these two courses will be provided on this page once they are available.
