The Virginia Podiatric Medical Association (VPMA) is a professional membership organization, representing and advocating the interests of actively practicing doctors of podiatry in the Commonwealth. The VPMA is the state component of the American Podiatric Medical Association.
Founded in 1912, the American Podiatric Medical Association (APMA) is the leading resource for foot and ankle health information. Currently, the organization represents a vast majority of the estimated 15,000 licensed podiatrists in the country. The APMA continues to advance the growth and stability of podiatric medicine by increasing nationwide awareness of foot and ankle health through public education and legislative advocacy.
The mission of the APMA – and thus the VPMA – is to advance and advocate for the profession of podiatric medicine and surgery for the benefit of its members and the public. The VPMA is the state component of the American Podiatric Medical Association.
