APMSA’s Partnership Program is a mutually beneficial partnership between corporations, organizations, alumni, podiatry groups who strive to enhance the educational process and experience of podiatric medical students. APMSA Partners understand that students are the future of the profession and support student education and professional development.

Organizations are invited to support APMSA’s mission and student membership through our partnership program. A partnership with APMSA is your organization’s opportunity to build strong relationships and brand awareness with the future leaders in the podiatric medical community. The collaboration gives your organization the ability to deliver your message directly to podiatric medical students across all podiatric medical schools in the United States.

Throughout the year, APMSA’s Partners are instrumental in funding a variety of APMSA’s educational programs from hands-on workshops and labs to sessions aimed at strengthening students’ leadership skills and real-world practice management knowledge. Partners help fund APMSA’s valuable travel, research, and education and service grants awarded to students each year. The Partnership Program also offsets the costs of APMSA’s popular Academic & Athletic Conference which brings students from across the country together to promote exceptional educational experiences and to foster student and partner networking and fellowship.

The APMSA's student written and published digital quarterly magazine, Footnotes, is a great opportunity to highlight your organization's products, services, or mission to all 2,400 podiatric medical students across the country. Check out Footnotes today and inquire about advertising or sponsorship opportunities. 

We have much to gain by working together to support students.
