Call for Comment Period Open: CPME Publications 120 and 130 Revisions in Progress
Every six years, the Council on Podiatric Medical Education conducts a comprehensive review of its standards, requirements, and procedures associated with its evaluation activities. In 2016, the Council appointed an Ad Hoc Advisory Committee to review CPME publication 120, Standards and Requirements for Accrediting Colleges of Podiatric Medicine and CPME publication 130, Procedures for Accrediting Colleges of Podiatric Medicine.
The Committee appointed to review the documents related to college evaluation and accreditation began meeting in 2016, and Draft I of the rewrite of CPME publications 120 and 130 was disseminated to the community of interest in December 2017. The Council reviewed all comments received from the community of interest concerning Draft I at its April 2018 meeting and determined that due to the number and nature of the comments received, the Committee would reconvene to address the comments and to provide recommendations to the Council at its October 2018 meeting. The Council reviewed the recommendations made by the Committee and approved Draft II of CPME publications 120 and 130 at its October 2018 meeting.
Per CPME 130, Draft II revisions of CPME publications 120 and 130 will be open for comment for four months. Following a review of the comments from the community of interest, the proposed revisions to CPME 120 and 130 will be considered for final adoption by the Council during its April 2019 meeting.
Please provide any comments or feedback regarding Draft II of CPME publications 120 and 130 by March 1, 2019, to:
