Jarrod Shapiro
DPM, FACPM, FACFAS, FFPM RCPS (Glasg.) Appointed Professor

Dr. Shapiro has been promoted to Professor of Podiatric Medicine, Surgery & Biomechanics at the WesternU College of Podiatric Medicine.

Dr. Shapiro is an ACPM board member, clinical podiatrist, teacher, residency program director of the Chino Valley Medical Center program, and writer. He is a fellow of the American College of Podiatric Medicine and American College of Foot and Ankle Surgeons. He is also a diplomate of the American Board of Podiatric Medicine and American Board of Foot and Ankle Surgery.

Dr. Shapiro is an advocate for proper treatment of podiatrists to match their their education, training, and experience; he is excited to see the future potential for a plenary license that would give podiatrists a seat at the political table with our allopathic and osteopathic colleagues. He would also like to see continued improvement in podiatric education with a national movement toward a more equivalent education between podiatric students and those in the MD and DO community.
