Note to Podiatric Residents: Any Podiatric Physician that is serving as a resident in a program recognized by the Council on Podiatric Medical Education (CPME) may be classified as an FPMA Resident Member. A Podiatric Physician that has completed a residency may remain in such membership status for a maximum period of one year or until entering podiatric employment. Podiatric Residents must apply through FPMA, but currently no dues are required at the state or national levels.
