Student Organizations

SOPM Student

Podiatric medical student organizations and specialty interest groups allow students to attend educational meetings and conferences sponsored by local, regional, national, and sometimes even international professional associations of that specialty. Through their participation, students become knowledgeable about and may consider becoming an active student members of one or more professional associations of that specialty. The Office of Student Affairs, SOPM, supports extracurricular student organizations as another means for students to explore career interests.
