Zych © 2013, APMA 6 APMA News February 2013 President’s Message Team APMA’s Remarkable Momentum Nearly a year ago, I stood before the House of Delegates as APMA’s newly elected president and spoke about my vision for the APMA “TEAM”: Tenacity, Endurance, Accountability, and Momentum. Over the past year, we have moved toward the goals of Vision 2015 with unstoppable energy, and I’m confident that we will achieve them. In my final President’s Message, let me update you on what we have accomplished, and ask for your help in continuing our momentum: Ensuring that podiatric medical education is comparable to allopathic and osteopathic medical education: The American Association of Colleges of Podiatric Medicine (AACPM) and CPME collaborated to create standard competencies for accreditation of the colleges of podiatric medicine. CPME has developed a three-year podiatric medicine and surgery residency that will become mandatory for all graduating podiatrists this year, and which has achieved full graduate medical education funding. Educating health-care professionals: We have formed mutually beneficial relationships with other medical specialty societies. I am working closely with AMA as vice chair of its Health Professional Awareness Education and Training Committee. The Society for Vascular Surgery is actively recruiting podiatrists as physician members. We continue to enjoy a close working relationship with the American Osteopathic Association, sharing space in its advocacy center. Obtaining state and federal recognition of podiatrists as physicians: Thirty-five states define podiatrists as physicians. Forty-five states and the District of Columbia include the ankle in their podiatric scope of practice. APMA is working closely with state components on their advocacy efforts and continues to strive for recognition by all areas of the federal government for podiatrists as physicians. Promoting podiatrists as physicians: Thanks to APMA’s Today’s Podiatrist campaign, more than 80 percent of state components regularly use our public education materials. Since relaunching our website in 2012, visitors and visit lengths and have increased, and the Find a Podiatrist tool continues to be wildly popular. We currently have more than 30,000 Twitter followers, more than 3,000 Facebook “likes,” and nearly 192,000 views of our YouTube videos. Attracting high-quality applicants to podiatric medical schools: APMA remains integrally involved by supporting AACPM as it now spearheads recruitment, and we continue to market podiatric medicine as a profession. • • • • • You can help us accelerate this momentum as we push to meet our ultimate goals. Begin by working more closely with other health-care professionals in your community. Encourage your state society to form relationships with state medical and osteopathic organizations, taking advantage of your contacts. Continue using our marketing and educational materials to promote your practice and educate the public. Use the tools on our eAdvocacy site (www.apma.org/eadvocacy), and participate in events like our March Legislative Conference. Invite students to shadow you in your practice, and visit local colleges and high schools. I leave our team in the capable hands of Matthew Garoufalis, DPM. His passion for podiatric medicine will serve the association well. It has been my great honor to serve APMA as president. Thank you for your support, your time, and your commitment to this great profession. I’m proud to be a part of your team. —Joseph M. Caporusso, DPM, President http://www.apma.org/eadvocacy
