The Office of Continuing Education was created to develop programs to meet the continuing education needs of the podiatric physician. As part of an academic institution with a focus on interprofessional education, the office is able to offer programs to other healthcare practitioners who also encounter foot and ankle conditions.
The focus of these programs is to increase knowledge and competence of podiatric physicians and other health professionals through lectures and workshops in order to address evidence-based medicine and practice gaps in the treatment of lower extremity disorders. Services include:
§ Provide and develop continuing education opportunities for faculty and alumni
§ Provide grand rounds sessions for students, residents and faculty
§ Facilitate partnerships between Scholl College programs and internal and external collaborators on continuing education programs in research or clinical areas
§ Develop and promote lectures and workshops that are sponsored by student organizations and clubs
Scholl College is approved by the Council on Podiatric Medical Education as a sponsor of continuing education in podiatric medicine.
