Call for Comment Period Open: CPME Specialty Certifying Boards Document Revisions


Every six (6) years, the Council on Podiatric Medical Education (Council or CPME) conducts a comprehensive review of its standards, requirements, and procedures associated with its evaluation activities. In February 2019, the Joint Committee on the Recognition of Specialty Boards (JCRSB) met to review and revise CPME publication 220, Criteria and Guidelines for Recognition of a Specialty Board for Podiatric Medical Practice and CPME publication 230, Procedures for Recognition of a Specialty Board for Podiatric Medical Practice

The JCRSB recommended edits to the CPME 220 and 230 documents, which were approved by the Council at its April 2019 meeting.

Per CPME 220, prior to adoption, the criteria and guidelines are to be disseminated widely in order to obtain information regarding how revisions will affect the community of interest. Following a review of the comments from the community of interest, the proposed revisions to CPME 220 and CPME 230 may be considered for final adoption by the Council during its October 2019 meeting.
