New Residency Documents and Training Dates

Residency Documents Adopted: CPME 320 and CPME 330 

Following a call for comment period from the community of interest, CPME has adopted the revisions to CPME 320, Standards and Requirements for Approval of Podiatric Medicine and Surgery Residencies, and CPME 330, Procedures for Approval of Podiatric Medicine and Surgery Residencies, with the exception of Appendix C, Milestones, due to comments from the community of interest. The Council elected to defer making a decision related to Appendix C, Milestones. CPME will survey the community of interest related to the required use of Milestones in residency training and will revisit this issue at its April 2023 meeting.

The newly approved documents have an implementation date of July 1, 2023.

Training for Residency Directors and Evaluators

CPME will hold training workshops at the three events listed below. We ask that program directors sign up for training workshops, even if they have already registered for the event where the workshop is taking place. Your registration will help CPME ensure we have enough seats and food for the event.

Residency on-site evaluators must attend a training workshop, including the full program director training and the one-hour session afterward specifically for on-site evaluators. CPME or the certifying board represented by the evaluator will reimburse evaluators for this training.
