Workshops and Seminars will focus on topics such ads
- Introduction to podiatric medicine
- biomechanics and pathomechanics of the foot and ankle
- foot screening and evaluations; and
- specialties in podiatric medicine (including diabetes, sports injuries, surgery, pediatrics and wound care).
Students applying for internships must have completed 45 credit hours at an undergraduate institution. In addition, they must not have previously applied to a school of podiatric medicine.
