Why should I join OPMA?
No. The “answer” area is a WYSIWYG editor, so anything is fair game; even videos can be inserted here.
How does the appllciation process work?
As many as you want! There’s no limit. If your answers are full of lots of large images, however, at some point the page load time may increase. But if that happens, it may be worth considering using more than one FAQ page.
What are the benefits of membership?
Absolutely. The accordion fields appear when the page template is set to FAQ Page (Collapsed Accordion). Any page can use this template and you can have as many as you want.
What continuing education does OPMA offer?
It refers to the fact that all the sections will be collapsed when the page is loaded. It is possible to set the first section to be open on page load, if that is desired. Sometimes, if an accordion is to be used for an informational page with only a few sections, it might be better to have the first section open.
If that is desired for any reason, we can create a new page template with that functionality.
When is the next seminar?
Of course. They’re just placeholders for now. We’ll come up with something more subtle and more appropriate to the design of this site.
What is a Podiatrist?
A podiatrist is a doctor of podiatric medicine (DPM), also known as a podiatric physician or surgeon. Podiatrists diagnose and treat conditions of the foot, ankle, and related structures of the leg.
What Are the Qualifications of a Podiatrist?
Podiatrists are the most qualified doctors to care for your feet. They complete four years of training in a podiatric medical school and three years of hospital residency training. This training is similar to that of other doctors. Podiatrists can specialize in many fields, including surgery, sports medicine, wound care, pediatrics (children), and diabetic care.
Are Podiatrists Board Certified?
Podiatrists can earn board certification with advanced training, clinical experience, and by ultimately taking an exam. The American Board of Foot and Ankle Surgery and the American Board of Podiatric Medicine are the certifying boards for the field.
Look for the “DPM”
Feet are complex anatomical structures, all-in-one stabilizers, shock absorbers, and propulsion engines that are instrumental to overall health and well-being. They require expert care. Be sure you’re seeing the most qualified health-care professional to treat your feet by looking for the letters “DPM” after his or her name. The DPM means a physician has completed years of rigorous foot and ankle training in podiatric medical school and hospital-based residency training, making him or her uniquely qualified to care for this part of the body.
