The ABPM Committees are finalized in July of each calendar year and continue through the following July. We are continuously looking for members who want to become involved with ABPM. If you are interested in becoming an ABPM Committee Member, please completed the form below!
The Budget/Audit Committee works closely with headquarters in determining the annual budget, fore-casting future budgetary requirements and personnel needs, reviewing monthly financial reports, etc.
The Credentials Committee is charged with evaluating state actions brought against members that impact their licensure, as well as current or former member appeals (e.g. reinstatement, change in member status, etc.). It also monitors compliance with board policies (e.g. advertising, ethics, etc.)
The Examination Committee has five subcommittees: Certification, Qualification, In-training, CAQ in Amputation Prevention & Wound Care, and the CAQ in Podiatric Sports Medicine. They develop new items for the respective examinations, review and update established items, review and update reference and study guide material, interact with the Board’s psychometrist in assessing and developing current and future testing methodology and evaluate the examination blueprint relative to current diplomate practice.
The Marketing Committee is tasked with disseminating relevant information to the membership both on the web site and via e-mail, developing resident and diplomate newsletters, developing tools for use by the membership in connection with insurance panel and hospital activities, developing informational materials for distribution at the ABPM booth at regional and national conferences, etc.
The MOC Committee has been most recently working together on restructuring the existing MOC process that has been in place since 2011 after replacing a costly recertification exam. The committee is working to improve the process and allow members to maintain certification by completing valuable educational activities online among other required components.
The Speaker’s Bureau, while not a committee, provides a presence proactively and at the request of the colleges of podiatric medicine and residency consortia to convey relevant information about board certification in general and ABPM certification in particular. Often the Speakers Bureau personnel also deliver clinical content in a specific area, or areas, of expertise.
