Resident News to Use!
October 2016
Keeping your eyes open to opportunity is always the key to success. In this issue we begin a series of features on fellowships.  This is something you might consider upon completing your residency or after you have been in practice a couple of years.  We hope these fellowship profiles as well as our practice profiles help you with added direction into your careers. 
Please email us at admin@abpmed.org to be added to our newsletter distribution, deadline reminders or with any specific questions about ABPM certification.  If you missed last month's member update - check out our history and who became our new Diplomates.  You may know some of them!  
Featured Fellowship at the University of Michigan
Fellowship Opportunity at the University of Michigan
Deadline: November 1, 2016

Insights from Dr. Michael Munson, Associate Professor Internal Medicine and Fellowship Program Director
 
Over the last couple of years, the ABPM has featured the career paths of different podiatrists in our Practice Profiles section of our Residents newsletter.   While we will resume those profiles in future issues, we have been asked by many residents to also profile different CPME approved fellowship programs .   As more podiatrist consider pursuing careers at academic health centers or simply want to expand their knowledge in a concentrated area, there seems to be an increased interest in fellowships.

A Note from the Editor - Dr. Melissa Lockwood
 
Hello and welcome to Fall!  As I write this, many of your colleagues that recently graduated have taken the ABPM certification examination. It's not too early to start thinking about this big step!  For third year residents, please make sure to check our "Deadlines" link for application information. First and second year residents, make sure you are taking the ABPM in-training exam this year (check with your director!) to prepare!  This month's newsletter has information about a great fellowship opportunity, a link to a recording on the growth of the wound care speciality by APBM Director Dr. Lee Rogers as well as links to upcoming events and our Steps to Certification.  Please let us know if there is other content you would like to see in these newsletters.  Thank you!
