The AAPPM isn’t just for doctors! They may be the medical experts, but when it comes to the day-to-day challenges of running a practice, they’d be lost without the assistance of their office managers.
From check-ins and testing to documentation, scheduling, marketing, and even adherence to protocols and compliance issues, an exceptional office manager can make the difference between a practice that’s struggling and one that’s thriving.
That’s why the AAPPM is dedicated to furthering the training, education, and success of all members of your practice staff—not just the doctors! Benefits of AAPPM membership for podiatry office managers include:
- A treasure trove of helpful info. Membership includes 24/7 access to an exclusive, secure library that includes HR and practice protocol documents, information on critical compliance issues, example forms, and a whole lot more!
- Building relationships with your peers and learning from their experience. The AAPPM conferences bring together podiatry office managers from around the country to learn and grow their practices through engaging workshops and sessions. Learn first-hand from peers who have been there before, and join a community of like-minded professionals eager to share their knowledge, successes, and struggles.
- Taking advantage of discounts. Through our corporate partnerships and sponsors, managers can qualify their practice for discounts on items to dispense to patients, or tools to increase internal efficiency. There are also special discounts exclusively available to AAPPM conference attendees.
- Empowering yourself and getting certified. For years, doctors and medical assistants have had certification programs designed to test and prove their abilities, but podiatry office managers had no such option—until now! Exclusively available from the AAPPM, the Certified Medical Office Manager – Podiatry program provides leadership training and tests managers’ mastery of compliance issues, financial management, employee relations, marketing, DME, and other areas critical to successful management of a podiatry practice.
