Doctors of Podiatric Medicine Ready to Serve During National Health Emergency

ABFAS joined with other podiatric associations in sending a letter of support urging the country’s governors to temporarily relax scope-of-practice standards for doctors of podiatric medicine immediately, allowing podiatrists to help on the front lines of the COVID-19 crisis.

The American Podiatric Medical Association, American College of Foot and Ankle Surgeons, American Board of Podiatric Medicine, and the American College of Podiatric Medicine were the other joint signatories to the letter asking the governors to support podiatric physicians’ and surgeons’ voluntary contributions to their level of education, training, experience, and expertise during this difficult time.
