Message from the Interim Dean

It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to Western University of Health Sciences, College of Podiatric Medicine (WesternU CPM). Podiatric Medicine and Surgery is an outstanding profession and a rewarding medical specialty. It is one of the best-kept secrets in the world of health care delivery.  Podiatric Medicine is a great career opportunity for pre-medical students looking for options that provide a clear pathway to medical specialization, offering many great options for the future.

As a podiatric physician practitioner who spent over 40 years in patient care management and academic medicine I’m able to say, without a doubt, podiatric medicine still provides me with excitement, challenges and rewards that remain my great vocation in life. Join me and enjoy making a difference in the lives of you future patients.
