Professionalism in Practice: An interview with Paul Scherer, DPM, MS and CEO

"Never limit yourselves. We place these encumbrances on ourselves. Diversification is the future. Don't limit yourself to private practice. Don't limit yourself to surgery. Sign up for different seminars, take different cases. Keep learning something new," explained Paul Scherer, DPM, MS and CEO of ProLab Orthotics in Napa and Health Plans Organization of California.

A Note from the Editor - Dr. Melissa Lockwood
Hello and Happy Holidays from the ABPM Board of Directors!  We are halfway through this training year and it is important for ALL residents to remember to check and double check BOTH your wish list for Santa AND your PRR logs!  Make sure that you are not only recording your surgical cases (be careful of bundling procedures -- that will put you on the naughty list for Santa!) and also ALL of your didactic experiences and H&Ps, biomechanical evaluations, and clinical time.  The PRR is YOUR log for future credentialing and you will want it to be as complete and thorough as possible for future employers and hospitals!  As always, feel free to contact myself or any of the Directors for more information on how the ABPM credential will help you get on your hospital staff and insurance panels!  Here is to a Happy 2017!
Feel free to reach out to us with additional questions!
