Podiatric Medical Assistants’ Education Program at The National Promotes Team Learning T he APMA Annual Scientific Meeting (The National) is not only the premier conference for practicing podiatrists, but it is the foremost educational event for your podiatric medical assistants, as well. This year will be no exception, as the American Society of Podiatric Medical Assistants (ASPMA) returns to present the Podiatric Medical Assistants’ Educational Program at The National. Running simultaneously with the general educational sessions, the assistants’ program offers unparalleled opportunities for assistants to enhance their contributions to your practice. Featuring sessions led by podiatrists, certified podiatric medical assistants, and experts in practice management, the program includes a balance of lectures for podiatric care and general office management. “Podiatric physicians need to continue their education in the field to keep up with new procedures, techniques, practice management, and current issues regarding the foot and ankle,” said Tina Del Buono, PMAC, scientific program chair at ASPMA. “The same holds true for podiatric medical assistants. Communication is the key to making our practices the best they can be. Podiatric medical assistants need to continue their education so that they can understand what their physicians are doing and saying and be able to assist them with patient care, from the front desk to the back treatment room.” In addition to attending their own dedicated sessions, podiatric medical assistants will participate each day in the breakfast symposium, general plenary lecture, and other select sessions alongside practicing podiatrists. “Who better to answer our questions but the physician we work for?” Del Buono added. The National is a special chance for podiatrists and their medical assistants to learn about new and exciting topics together. Along with the abundant educational sessions, ASPMA will also offer comprehensive review courses and certification examinations during The National. Certification exams are offered only a few times a year, so take advantage of this valuable opportunity to augment your practice with the addition of credentialed staff. Del Buono explained, “Certification is a mark of excellence. It demonstrates that a certified podiatric medical assistant has the skill and knowledge to ensure quality of care. Certification demonstrates a commitment to the profession. Certification gives the assistant a sense of accomplishment and achievement, and [a certified assistant becomes] more of an asset to [his or her] physician by doing so.” The Podiatric Medical Assistants’ Educational Program at The National is a unique event to further educate your staff members so they may better assist you and your practice, so don’t forget to complete their registration while making your plans to attend! APMA members pay the full price ($195 until July 29) to register the first assistant but get a 25-percent discount on each additional assistant registered from the practice.
