ABPMs Over 40 Year History at a Glance...
The ABPM celebrates over 41 years of support to the American Podiatric community 
"Many people do not realize the extensive history of the ABPM," stated Dr. Marc Benard, who is celebrating 20 years as Executive Director of the ABPM this July. "We have had a few significant changes since 1975, but as a credentialing organization, our roots span 41 years."
When to Consult another Healthcare Practitioner
by Dr. Melissa Lockwood
A recent residency graduate from Florida, just entering private practice, asked me this interesting question last week. How do we, as podiatrists, know when to consult another health care professional and more importantly, who to consult, in a private practice setting?
A Note from the Editor - Dr. Melissa Lockwood
It's that time of year again!  I like to refer to July and August as the official "changing of the guard".  First, WELCOME to all our new resident subscribers!  We hope that our regular newsletter will provide you with key tips and insights to help make your transition to residency easier.  Secondly, hello to all our returning residents!  Time is marching closer to "the end" for you.  Be sure to keep a close eye on upcoming dates for the ABPM in training exam and the qualification exam in the spring.  As always, we are happy to connect with you on our website and also look forward to seeing many of you at most major upcoming events!  Be sure to stop by the ABPM booth at events to say "hi" and find out the latest info from ABPM!
