Consultant Partners

What’s the best way to be the best? Learn from the best!

The AAPPM maintains a special relationship with its consultant partners. We are proud to stand behind them as some of the greatest minds in everything from marketing and legal services to hiring, billing, strategic analysis, capital management, and more. And they are united in their passion for, and commitment to, the future of podiatry.

Our consultant partners are an integral part of our education program at the AAPPM and are frequently invited to lead workshops and exhibitions at each AAPPM meeting. They are also available for FREE 30-minute consultations at AAPPM meetings—a rare opportunity you won’t want to miss out on!
