Education, residency and credentialing standards change periodically. Updating hospital bylaws, department policies, and the privileging process ensures the safety of patients and continued access to competent care. The Guide to Credentialing and Privileging Doctors of Podiatric Medicine, distributed by the American Board of Podiatric Medicine (ABPM), provides a comprehensive summary of podiatry’s educational and residency requirements over the past decade and the importance of reviewing these changes concurrent with a podiatrist’s (or any specialist’s) experience and board certification.
More information for hospital and credentialers, including The Guide to Credentialing and Privileging Doctors of Podiatric Medicine, can be found at www.podiatryprivileges.com
