In keeping with its mission, the Foundation for Podiatric Medicine honors the tradition of advancing the profession through education. Its premier educational event, the Clinical Conference, gathers the best and brightest faculty to present the vital educational and clinical information that is so important to podiatrists. The Clinical Conference ensures both quality patient care and the continuing growth of the profession. Learning formats include hands-on wet lab workshops, lectures and interactive panel discussions. The Clinical Conference is scheduled annually in January. It will include presentations on the profession's latest technologies, surgical techniques, vendor information and more.
