Student Clubs

Welcome to the AAPPM Student
Practice Management Club!

Mission Statement: The AAPPM student clubs exist to motivate & inspire the future of podiatry through leadership education, practice management education, service and the sharing of knowledge.

AAPPM-StudentsThe American Academy of Podiatric Practice Management (AAPPM), an affiliate and the practice management voice of the APMA, has a proud, 49 year history of providing members with the practice management education and resources they need to practice more efficiently and profitably. AAPPM has over 1,250 DPM and assistant members and is podiatry’s premier association for exceptional practice management education and resources.

Now, thanks in large measure to a grant from Les Appel, DPM and his prefab orthotic company, Powerstep (, AAPPM is partnering with the podiatric medical schools and colleges to help provide educational programming and speakers, fund and manage student Practice Management Clubs. We currently have clubs in all schools with the exception of New York — where we hope to have a club soon.

AAPPM and Powerstep are providing the AAPPM Practice Management Clubs with top practice management speakers and partial sponsorship for food and beverages for meetings, regular leadership conference calls for club presidents to share ideas and address management issues, membership literature and full access to the AAPPM Web site for student Practice Management Club members at –

Students — Take Your First Step Towards Achieving Practice Success By Joining the AAPPM Practice Management Club at Your School!

If you are a student, joining the AAPPM Practice Management Club is the first important step towards becoming not only a knowledgeable podiatric physician, but towards building a great practice. While podiatry schools and residency programs teach students the clinical information they need to begin the practice of podiatric medicine, Practice Management Club teaches students how to be better caretakers, employers, employees, colleagues and mentors – and how to run a successful practice from a business standpoint. Members share each others’ successes, answer each others’ questions and help see each other through the challenges in school andAAPPM-YoungPractitioners life.

“If you want to be truly successful as a podiatric physician in today’s world, and the world of tomorrow, you need to be much more than just a great clinician. You also need to be a great business person. The practice management knowledge I have learned from the AAPPM is invaluable and will not be found anywhere else in your education. The speakers are outstanding and the leaders of the organization are amazing at helping the student leaders organize superb events for student practice management education.”
