As a practitioner in the field of podiatry for 20 or more years, you’ve acquired a large amount of valuable knowledge and experience. Membership with the Institute for Podiatric Excellence and Development is a give and take proposition.
A Great Deal to Offer
As a successful podiatrist who has been “in the trenches” for many years, you are a huge resource to practitioners who are starting out or struggling to expand their practice. Mentoring is a key component of IPED. Sharing your insights and offering the benefit of your experience to younger members will help them succeed individually and progress further in the field of podiatry. Sharing information is an important part of IPED’s mission.
A Great Deal to Receive
Membership with IPED is definitely not a one-way street for veteran practitioners. As healthcare regulation components continue to change, it can be invaluable to consult with other colleagues and experts who are up-to-date on the latest requirements for coding, compliance and documentation. We offer continuing education materials presented through the utilization of technology (making it easier to access with your busy schedules).
Improved patient care is also an IPED goal and we can connect veteran practitioners with vendors and current research to help you continue to provide cutting edge treatment options for your patients.
Finally, if you’re approaching the end of your career and are looking to downsize or retire, IPED has resources to help you assess the true value of your practice and the contacts to help you make choices that will impact your quality of life now and into the future. Or, if you are looking to take on an associate (allowing you to reduce your hours and possibly partner/sell your practice in the upcoming years), our organization can provide networking opportunities on many levels.
