Podiatry Focus: Footfest
Designed as a day for potential students to experience the world of podiatric medicine, FootFest is paired with an existing podiatric medical clinical conference in various parts of the country. Students are invited to the program and are able to participate in a full day of events including a panel of members within the podiatric medical community, an interactive activity (such as casting), lectures on cutting edge techniques and relevant podiatry topics, a luncheon with mentors (current students, professors and podiatric physicians), and a tour of the exhibit hall at each conference to witness firsthand all of the exciting products being used by podiatrists. The program is completely free of charge (minus transportation costs) and the feedback from students who have participated has been extremely positive.
AACPM is currently planning on holding FootFest events at the American Podiatric Medical Association Region One Conference in Boston, MA on October 16 and the Mid-Atlantic Podiatry Conference in College Park, MD on October 23.
In addition, AACPM will be hosting a virtual FootFest program as part of the first ever Virtual Podiatry Fair on November 18, which will allow students who may not live in an area where FootFest is hosted to participate in a similar event online.
Information for these events is released both on the HealthProf listserv and through AACPM Social Media, so follow AACPM on Facebook and on Twitter.
