Looking Forward: Thoughts from Dr. Casteel
  • What are your hopes for the podiatric profession moving forward?
  • What role do you feel the ACPM should play to enhance the profession?
"I am strong believer that we are physicians first before we are specialists. Podiatrists should have a strong background in general medicine to treat the patient as a whole, rather than solely focusing on the lower extremities. I feel very fortunate that my residency training heavily involved “off-service” rotations, including rheumatology, dermatology, PM&R, orthopedic/trauma surgery, infectious diseases and family medicine, and as such I would love to see this diversity of “off-service” rotations in all podiatric residencies across the country. Incorporating a holistic training to our residency curriculum can serve to bolster the medical training of our graduating residents and better link our training to our allopathic/osteopathic counterparts."
"I am very excited to see ACPM continuing to expand its educational offerings to its members, including the e-Learning POD Program, Expert Lecture Series, online seminars and the new Lower Extremity Journal Review. I envision ACPM continuing this momentum and becoming an invaluable educational resource for not only its members, but also students and residents."
