This time-honored tradition of older, more experienced podiatrists mentoring young podiatry students, residents and podiatrists has helped create the podiatric leaders of today and continues to make the podiatric profession the world’s foremost experts in foot and ankle biomechanics, surgery and medicine. Let us all continue to make every effort to mentor and encourage our young podiatrists since, like me, they may only need someone to inspire them and guide them toward their path of becoming the podiatric researchers and educators of the future.
