Proposed Revisions to CPME 120 Scheduled for Consideration by the Council on Podiatric Medical Education in April 2018
Call for Comment by March 1, 2018
On a regularly scheduled basis, the Council on Podiatric Medical Education reviews the standards, requirements, and procedures associated with its evaluation activities. In order to facilitate these reviews, ad hoc educational policies, standards, requirements, and procedures committees are appointed. In 2016, the Council appointed an ad hoc advisory committee to review CPME publication 120, Standards and Requirements for Accrediting Colleges of Podiatric Medicine. The Committee met through face-to-face meetings in February and May 2017 and conducted several conference calls and communicated through email throughout 2016 and 2017. At CPME’s October 2017 meeting, the Council adopted a proposed draft, which includes significant revisions to CPME publication 120.
Following review of comments from the community of interest, the proposed revisions to CPME 120 will be considered for final adoption by the Council during its April 2018 meeting.
Comments from the community of interest should be forwarded by March 1, 2018 to:
Heather Stagliano, Director
Council on Podiatric Medical Education
9312 Old Georgetown Road
Bethesda, MD 20814
