January is always a time for new beginnings and making improvements. One way you can take your podiatric practice to the next level is by becoming a member of the Institute for Podiatric Excellence and Development (IPED). Our mission is: To bridge the gap between podiatry students, resident physicians, seasoned professionals and ancillary staff by providing a structured forum of education, support, and mentorship relating to scientific and outcome–based patient care, compliance adherence, healthcare reform, and management skills essential to succeed in the changing world of practicing medicine.
