EARN YOUR CECH THIS SUMMER AT THE NATIONAL
At the time this article was written, there was still a great deal of uncertainty surrounding the logistics of The National
due to the ongoing COVID-19 public health crisis. Whether in-person, virtually, or both, The National will take place this
summer. For the most current information, visit www.apma.org/thenational.

T

he APMA 2020 Annual Scientific Meeting (The National) is the must-attend meeting for every podiatrist. The National brings foot and ankle physicians
and surgeons from across the country for learning
and camaraderie. During these trying times, the profession
needs events like The National more than ever.
This year's event is scheduled for July 23-26 in Boston and
will provide attendees with up to 29.5 CECH. In response to
attendee feedback, The National is making several changes
this year. Rather than three tracks, the program will feature
two: a surgical track and a medical track. Surgical lectures
cover complications, trauma, limb preservation, and more.
Medical topics include dermatology, sports medicine, biomechanics, disparities, and others. (Check out the preliminary
program at www.apma.org/thenational.)
No National is complete without the Harry Goldsmith,
DPM, Memorial Coding Seminar. This year, coding experts
Jeffrey Lehrman, DPM, and David Freedman, DPM, will present. Both presenters are Certified Professional Coders, a rare
distinction within the profession, and proof that APMA is the
gold standard in foot and ankle coding education. Hear about
the latest coding updates, including seismic changes coming
to E/M coding in 2021.
In just a few short years, the Podiatry School Student Quiz
Bowl has become the can't-miss event at The National. This
"Jeopardy!"-style competition features one rising fourth-year
student from each of the nine colleges of podiatric medicine.

Contestants are questioned on a range of podiatric subjects
before a raucous and energetic crowd.
The risk management program at The National is consistently one of the most popular sessions. This year's lecture is sure to
make an impact. It can be a sobering event when you are notified that you are being sued for more than $7 million, which is
$6.5 million in excess of your professional liability policy limits.
This lecture will provide insight into a real case and the toll it
takes on the physician, both physically and mentally. In addition, it will explore how a malpractice case impacts the practice
and the staff. The presenters will discuss the strengths and
weaknesses of the case, and how the team navigated through
the challenges by focusing on the medical and legal aspects.
PICA policyholders attending The National are eligible for
up to a 15-percent premium discount for attending the risk
management programming. Those attendees who have participated in other meetings or the home study and received a
10-percent discount can receive an additional 5-percent discount for attending the risk management programming at
The National.
APMA recognizes that many CECH events have been canceled, so APMA is extending early-bird registration rates
through the duration of online registration. So, whether you
commit to the meeting now or in early July, you will still pay
the best possible rate. As a reminder, students and residents
may attend The National for free. Complete your online registration today at www.apma.org/thenational! n
