Arizona College of Podiatric Medicine at Midwestern University (AZCPM)

Location: Glendale, Arizona

The Midwestern University (MWU) Arizona College of Podiatric Medicine is a 4-year program whose core curriculum is similar to that of other medical schools. Courses in the clinical sciences are integrated with basic science courses during the first two years of the curriculum. Clinical courses continue through the summer and part of the fall quarter of the third year. All basic science courses and some clinical courses are shared with osteopathic medical students. Part time clinical training occurs in the second year. Full time clinical training occupies eight months of the third year and all of the fourth year. The overall goal of the school is to prepare the finest possible podiatric physicians for entry into residency training.

Second-, third-, and fourth-year students complete clinical rotations in private practices, hospitals, and clinics. During these rotations, they learn how to take general and podiatric histories, perform routine physical examinations, interpret tests and imaging, make diagnoses, and perform therapeutic procedures. The only podiatric medical school in the Southwest, Midwestern University's program offers innovative instructional and learning techniques and takes full advantage of the abundant resources available on the campus and in the community. Students are taught fundamental skills early in the curriculum, which allows them to benefit more fully from an early introduction to patient care. Many elective rotations are available to podiatric medical students attending Midwestern University.

The integration of podiatry with the other health sciences disciplines at Midwestern University more fully prepares graduates to function effectively in the increasingly multidisciplinary care patterns of the future. Through the rigorous curriculum at Midwestern University, podiatry students gain the requisite medical knowledge and practical skills necessary to excel in residency and practice. Through an extensive program of community service, podiatric medicine students develop an appreciation for the importance of ethics and professionalism in combination with compassion and cultural sensitivity.
