APMA News - September/October 2020 - 14

continued from page 12

Throughout the year, APMA coding experts attend many
conferences through the Ask the Expert program. In August,
APMA offered three virtual sessions, with one geared specifically toward assistants. In total, nearly 100 physicians and
assistants attended these sessions.
Non-CECH training events are also going virtual. The Young
Physicians' Institute (YPI) is an annual leadership training
event for the next generation of podiatric leaders. Traditionally,
component organizations have sponsored young physicians
identified as potential future leaders. This year, with the event
going virtual, APMA is looking forward to hosting more young
physicians than ever during the event October 3-4.
The YPI program includes opportunities for leadership
training, professional development, and personal growth.
During this weekend, attendees will hear about contract negotiations, emotional intelligence, cultural competency and
leadership, practice marketing, and more. To review the program, visit www.apma.org/ypi.
In keeping with CPME requirements, events like the Virtual Coding Seminar, spring Online CECH series, and Sum-

mer Series only provide CECH for those who attended the
live events. APMA is currently in the process of developing
on-demand CECH lectures for the APMA Online Learning
Center. Keep an eye on your APMA publications this fall for
more information.
While one cannot know how long the COVID-19 national health crisis will last, it is clear that virtual learning
is part of the future of continuing education. APMA hopes
it can host The National 2021 in Denver, July 29-August
1, as planned, and we can safely meet in-person with our
members and industry partners. Whether this meeting
happens in person or not, the association will continue to
provide a variety of learning opportunities for its members. For the latest online offerings, visit www.apma.org/
onlinecech. n
*APMA is approved by the Council on Podiatric Medical Education as a provider of continuing education in podiatric medicine.
APMA has approved this activity for a maximum of 4.0 continuing
education contact hours.

Step into Podiatry Campaign
Visits the Summer Series
In previous years, APMA has hosted an in-person Step into
Podiatry event at The National for prospective students. The
event has featured hands-on cadaveric suture workshops,
lunch with the leadership of the American Podiatric Medical
Students' Association, conversations with the colleges of podiatric medicine in the exhibit hall, Q&A sessions with young
physicians, and more.
While it's hard to compete with a dynamic in-person event, it's
critical to remember what prospective students are most interested in learning about the profession: "What's podiatry like?"
APMA answered that question with a virtual Step into Podiatry session offered during the Online CECH Summer Series. On Saturday, August 15, prospective students were invited to attend a selection of lectures that showcased some of
the highlights of the field. Lectures covered foot and ankle
trauma, surgery, and sports medicine. During the lunch

break, prospective students met with APMA Young Physician
Leadership Panel member Rachel Albright, DPM, MPH, and
current podiatry student Manali Chingre from Dr. William M.
Scholl College of Podiatric Medicine at Rosalind Franklin
University of Medicine and Science to ask questions about
the profession, podiatric medical school, and more.
Providing prospective students access to virtual learning
opportunities such as APMA's Summer Series has proven to
be a great way to leverage existing continuing education programs as a sneak peek at podiatry, keeping students engaged
with the profession while restrictions on in-person mentoring
remain in place.
