Welcome to ABPM
The American Board of Podiatric Medicine (ABPM) offers a comprehensive board qualification and certification process in podiatric medicine and orthopedics.
Podiatric Medicine and Orthopedics is the medical specialty concerned with the comprehensive and continuous foot health care of patients. It integrates the biological, biomechanical, rehabilitative, clinical and behavioral sciences and encompasses first contact care, continuous care, long term care and general medicine.
Board certification provides the assurance to both the public and health professionals that the highest level of achievement has been attained in the specialty area.
While certification by the Board does not guarantee competence in practice, it does indicate that the podiatric physician has been judged by his peers to have demonstrated, via a rigorous examination process, a fund of knowledge and competence in the areas being tested.
The Certificate of the American Board of Podiatric Medicine is a unique achievement—a step well beyond the mandatory education of the podiatrist or state requirements for licensure.
