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.
