The fair will be covering podiatric medicine as a career choice - from surgery to wound care to sport medicine. Representative from the schools of podiatric medicine will be available during the day to chat. Additionally, current students, faculty and DPM Speakers and Mentors will be available to share why they chose podiatric medicine.

Additionally, AACPM has partnered with ExamKrackers for this event and there will be instructors providing tips throughout the day for prepping for the MCAT. One virtual fair participant will win a FREE ExamKrackers Test Prep Lesson!
Why consider a career in podiatric medicine?
  • A Doctor of Podiatric Medicine (DPM) is a specialist in the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of lower extremity disorders, diseases and injuries.
  • DPMs can specialize in a variety of areas such as surgery, orthopedics, or public health. Besides these certified specialties, podiatrists may practice a subspecialty such as sports medicine, pediatrics, dermatology, radiology, geriatrics, or diabetic foot care.
  • The DPM is a vital member of the health-care team. He or she is often the first to detect symptoms of diabetes or peripheral vascular disease because of the human foot’s interrelation with the rest of the body.
