Our Physician Members

All practicing podiatirc physician members of the California Podiatric Medical Association (CPMA) are licensed by the state of California. California licensure requires rigorous education and training in science and medicine, successfully passing demanding examinations, and continuous education and training after licensure.  CPMA Members are obligated to follow a strict professional code of ethics set forth by The American Podiatric Medical Association (APMA). As members of CPMA, podiatric physicians are afforded many benefits on both the state and national level.  CPMA and APMA provide members with a cohesive platform from which to advocate for podiatric physicians on all issues affecting foot and ankle health nationally and in California.
