New Dean, Dr. Kathleen Satterfield, takes charge at critical time for WesternU's CPM

Western University of Health Sciences' College of Podiatric Medicine is trying something unprecedented in podiatric medicine by having it's students sit for the same licensing exam as osteopathic (DO) and allopathic (MD) students.

To provide stability during this critical juncture, WesternU has tapped CPM Associate De an and ABPM Diplomate, V. Kathleen Satterfield, DPM, FACFAOM, MAPWCA, as the College's new dean, effective May 1, 2019.

"Once we prove our students are passing the same tests that their DO and MD colleagues do with success, we have a good argument that we have reached parity," Satterfield said.
Watch this short video below as ABPM Diplomate, Dr. Kathleen Satterfield, tells us why she chose podiatry, gets candid about her time at WesternU and explains her vision for the college as the new dean!
