In order to continue to bring the best and brightest prospective podiatric medicine students to our college, we are focusing on the following enhancements for our college.
• Scholarships Many students have the talent and drive to succeed, but they lack the financial means. As the largest need of the college, it should be known that the average debt of a graduating student from the college is $209,000. Your gift to a scholarship changes a student’s life and helps the College of Podiatric Medicine continue to be a place where practice breeds practicing podiatrists. Learn more about Scholarships.
• Small Group Learning Updated curriculum and space for small group learning is essential for the college. Fourteen new spaces could be developed and implemented that mimic a hospital, team-based approach. These spaces will inspire group problem solving better than large lecture based learning.
• International Clerkships Launching in the Spring of 2020, CPM students will have the opportunity to study abroad with a one-month clerkship near Florence, Italy. Because global linkages are important to our students education, the college is excited to offer this opportunity for them to be involved in international programs, and needs to be able to offer financial support.
