Looking Forward: Thoughts from Dr. Hook
  • What are your hopes for the podiatric profession moving forward?
  • What role do you feel the ACPM should play to enhance the profession?
"Although I think this is already happening to some extent, I would like to see the profession become more integrated and a part of the entire healthcare system. We know, as podiatrists, how vital our care is to the physical- and sometimes mental- health of the patient. Podiatric care becoming part of the entire care team of the patient would be invaluable. This will be a long journey and take a lot of effort, but the outcome could be so rewarding for podiatrists and our patients."
"I think it is the responsibility of all of our organizations, and maybe even especially the College, to reach potential students, current students, residents, and young practitioners. I think current podiatrists and podiatric leaders should be not only working to protect and improve our profession currently, but also striving to guide the future of podiatry. We can do this best by educating podiatrists and ensuring they are leaders in medicine and health care. ACPM, in educating and supporting its members, allows potential practitioners to see the benefits of becoming part of our amazing profession."
