Ep. 120 – “Podiatrist for a Day” – Dean’s Chat on Location – UT – Health, UT – San Antonio

“Podiatrist for a Day”, on April 20, 2024, more than 30 pre-med students from throughout Texas converged on San Antonio for an “immersion” experience!

The students had to opportunity to scrub in, gown and glove, do “table rounds”, see a cadaver workshop, tour the wound care and hyperbaric oxygen center, and participate in a suture workshop. They also were introduced to different aspects of podiatric medicine with lectures on surgery, diabetic foot care, sports medicine, military practice, VA medicine, private practice, research, and academic medicine.

Check out the interviews with students that participated in the immersion experience!

A special thank you to all that participated – Dr. Lee Rogers, Dr. Alexandria Armstrong, Dr. Graham Hamilton, Dr. Howard Liebeskind, Dr. Chad Howze, Dr. Francis Derk, Dr. William Chagares, Dr. Cyanndi Dove, and Mori North and Jennifer Bessette from the American Association of Colleges of Podiatric Medicine.

Mostly, a thank you to the students that participated in the program – future podiatric physicians!
