NOTE: The CAQs detailed below are issued solely by the ABPM to its diplomates. The Joint Committee on Recognition of Specialty Board (JCRSB) of the Council on Podiatric Medical Education recognizes the certification process of the ABPM but has not developed a recognition process for Certificates of Added Qualification. Therefore, at this time the ABPM's recognition by the JCRSB does not extend specifically to the CAQ.

It is essential for applicants requesting special accommodations to submit supporting documentation at the time of application submission.
