4The National Today APMA Annual Scientific MeetingThursday, July 24, 2014Residency Genesis: An UpdateAs of July 2, 556 (87.4 percent)of the 636 applicants for aresidency training programhad matched with a residency.That leaves 70 applicants stillseeking a position for the 2014–15training year, 44 of whom are membersof the class of 2014. The profession hasmade tremendous progress since the2013 CASPR/CRIP cycle, generatingapproximately 60 new positions sinceMarch 2013. But APMA and CPMEremain committed to providing aresidency program for every qualifiedgraduate.CPME has been nimble in adjustingits processes to expedite approval of newresidencies—without compromising thequality of its reviews. Earlier this month,CPME’s Residency Review Committeedetermined the new Podiatric Medicineand Surgery Residency sponsored by Martin Health System in Stuart, FL, is eligiblefor on-site evaluation. The program isrequesting approval for 1/1/1 positions.The council also is working with twoinstitutions to complete applications for atotal of 7/7/7 positions. (Visit www.CPME.org/residency for the latest information onpositions eligible for evaluation.)CPME has continued to enforce theenrollment cap, resulting in unprecedented stability in the number of studentsentering and graduating from the nation’s colleges of podiatric medicine. Thecouncil also has conducted three separateefforts to increase the number of approvedresidency positions by determining whichexisting programs have the capacity to addpositions. Those efforts alone have resultedin 101 new positions since 2009.Those efforts are paying dividends forthe profession. In fact, this year, therewere enough CPME-approved residencypositions for every member of the classof 2014. Unfortunately, there were manypreviously unmatched graduates in thematch, and not every approved position isfilled every year, due to a variety of factors.These factors include dwindling clinicalvolume, hospital funding, and more.Only about 10 percent of the podiatricmedical profession is involved in residencytraining. APMA exhorts its members tohelp address our residency shortage. Getinvolved as faculty at your local residencyprogram; bring surgical cases to your localresidency program (this step is particularly important because some existingprograms are not filling their positions dueto declining clinical volume); or start anew program if you believe your institution could support one.William Spielfogel, DPM, recentlylaunched a new Podiatric Medicine andSurgery Residency program with theadded credential in Reconstructive Rearfoot and Ankle Surgery (PMSR/RRA) atNorth Shore Long Island Jewish HealthSystem—Lenox Hill Hospital in New York.Dr. Spielfogel recently spoke with APMANews to dispel some of the myths aroundthe process. (Read the full story in theJune issue of that publication, available atthe APMA booth [#623].)“The process is fair,” Dr. Spielfogel said.“It’s very thorough, but they aren’t tryingto trick you. We need uniform standardsacross the board to educate residents.” Headvised other physicians to get involved inresidency education and to treat the process of starting a residency program likefollowing a recipe: “Everything you needto know is in CPME 320 and 330. It’s likea cookbook. You just have to follow therecipe.” He took advantage of assistancefrom CPME and from the American Association of Colleges of Podiatric Medicine(AACPM) National Residency FacilitationProject, for which APMA provides significant funding.This afternoon at The National, theAACPM Council of Teaching Hospitals(COTH) will hold its 2014 ResidencyDirector’s Workshop from 2 to 3:30. Thisprogram is designed to address current topics of importance to residency directors andfaculty, as well as those who are considering becoming residency directors. Thisyear, COTH will cover the new residencyselection scramble process Match PhaseII, which will streamline and condense theselection and scramble process into a oneweek period. The workshop also will address the issue of proper logging, which, asa CPME requirement, is a complicated butnecessary quality assurance function. Thesession will allow time for participants tonetwork with AACPM and COTH staff toaddress other questions and concerns.If you’re interested in following in Dr.Spielfogel’s footsteps by getting involvedin residency education, make it a point toattend the workshop, in Room 301B. Thencontact the National Residency Facilitation Project at ewolf@aacpm.org or CPMEat 800-372-0775.Support for Unmatched GraduatesIn addition to working actively to address the residency shortage, APMA hasfocused significant effort on providingresources for those graduates who havenot yet matched with a program. APMAoffers a suite of tools and articles aboutmanaging student loan debt at www.apma.org/youngphysicians and is working to develop resources for unmatchedgraduates in the form of interviewadvice and more. APMA News publishesa monthly interview with a residencydirector with firsthand advice for studentsand past graduates about matching withresidency programs; the archive of interviews can be found at www.apma.org/youngphysicians.This spring, the APMA House of Delegates adopted Resolution 10-14, whichprovides for APMA-funded postgraduatetransitional research programs at collegeswith unmatched students. APMA provides a matching grant of up to 25,000per school to fund research conducted byan unmatched graduate from that institution.Join APMA in addressing our residencyshortage head-on. “For more than a century, our profession has overcome challenges by uniting in the face of adversity,”said APMA Executive Director and CEOGlenn Gastwirth, DPM. “Now is not thetime to abandon the goals of educationalparity with allopathic and osteopathicmedicine. Now is the time for every member of the profession to redouble his orher commitment to the future of podiatricmedicine.”APMA BOT Discusses Communications, ResidenciesThe APMA Board of Trustees covered a varietyof important topics, ranging from communications to residency genesis, during its summer meeting yesterday at the Hilton HawaiianVillage.The meeting began with a report fromPresident Frank Spinosa, DPM, who updatedthe board on his recent travels. Dr. Spinosaand APMA Executive Director and CEOGlenn B. Gastwirth, DPM, recently returnedfrom the American Osteopathic Association (AOA) House of Delegates meeting inChicago, where APMA was recognized fromthe podium. APMA has a strong and ongoingrelationship with AOA, and Drs. Gastwirthand Spinosa met many members of the AOAleadership during the meeting, including thespeaker of the house, president, CEO, outgoing president, president-elect, vice president,and past presidents. They also met withthe National Board of Medical Examinerspresident.Dr. Spinosa shared with the board thatalthough osteopathic schools graduate several thousand new DOs each year, they haveonly about a third of the needed osteopathicresidency positions. The remainder of the DOgraduates must seek allopathic residenciesor go unmatched. This information gave riseto a discussion of how best to communicatewith students and graduates, and the differences in the way osteopathic medicine asa profession handles its residency shortageas compared with podiatric medicine. Theosteopaths, for example, have consideredproviding residents no stipend or evencharging residents to participate in residencytraining.Dr. Spinosa also covered his plans toimprove communications with members, particularly state leadership. During next year’sHouse of Delegates meeting, he said, he willask all trustees to join him on the dais duringhis state-of-APMA presentation so that theymay provide information about their work onbehalf of the profession.Dr. Spinosa and Ira Kraus, DPM, APMAtreasurer, recently returned from the American Board of Foot and Ankle Surgery(ABFAS) oral boards. APMA leadership willmeet with ABFAS tomorrow in Hawaii.APMA’s Young Physician Liaison to theBoard of Trustees Mindi Feilmeier, DPM,reminded the board about the Young Physicians’ Institute coming up in October inFranklin, TN, and the assembled group discussed how the Young Physicians’ Programcan best be branded and promoted.Discussion also covered how APMA caninfluence ICD-10 implementation, as well asparticipation in the RUC and CPT process.Board members expressed their enthusiasm about this year’s Annual ScientificMeeting and the many opportunities to meetwith and hear from members and other attendees.APMA President Frank Spinosa, DPM, (center) presides over the BOT meeting yesterday.
