Nominations

The Board of Directors of the American Board of Podiatric Medicine is pleased to announce that the nominations period for an open seat on the Board for the 2023-2027 term will be forthcoming this year, and one occupied seat will open for re-election by ABPM’s membership.
The Board meets for full meetings four times a year and plays a crucial oversight role in directing the operational and financial activities of the ABPM. Board members also serve on the operational committees of the board related to exams, public outreach, marketing, hospital credentialing and privileging, budget, maintenance of certification, nominations, and others. Additionally, board members represent ABPM at the country’s premier podiatric medical conferences. Most importantly, the board works to develop a robust examination program for its podiatric medical Board Certification exam. Other exams include; In-Training Exams for resident podiatric physicians, and Certificates of Added Qualification for existing diplomates and diplomates of other CPME-recognized boards.
This year, one seat on the board of directors will vacate, while a second seat, is open with an incumbent board member running for a second term. Pursuant to ABPM’s bylaws, an election among Diplomates must be held to decide who will occupy these seats for the next four years. Both seats must be filled by a practicing Doctor of Podiatric Medicine, chosen from among ABPM’s diplomate pool.
