If I have piqued your interest, a fellowship might be the logical next step in your podiatric career. I encourage you to contact the ACFAS and the Council on Podiatric Medical Education (CPME) for a complete list of recognized fellowships and their subsequent contact information. According to their websites, the current list of ACFAS recognized fellowships consist of 24 programs and the CPME recognizes 11 approved fellowships.
My experience has been advantageous in every way. My subspecialized training is a rewarding balance of academia, clinical and surgical training. A research fellowship encompasses so many aspects of hands-on education and application, but ultimately I will come away from this experience knowing that in some capacity, I have made a contribution to our field of podiatric medicine.
