Outside of the classroom…
At the College of Podiatric Medicine, we inspire our students to fully immerse themselves in their academic journey while also embracing enriching extracurricular activities. Active participation beyond the classroom not only fosters personal growth but also opens doors to invaluable leadership opportunities, nurturing your personal and professional development.
