Greeting From the Dean
On behalf of the entire college community, I welcome you to the NYCPM website. The New York College of Podiatric Medicine is a college that has been a leader in Podiatric Medical Education for over a 100 years. Our mission is to graduate Doctors of Podiatric Medicine who are well prepared to enter graduate training programs and ultimately practice.
The curriculum leading to the awarding of the DPM degree is delivered in a traditional manner based upon a successive mastery of basic medical Anatomy, Physiology and Pathology, followed by rigorous clinical clerkships where students under the direct mentorship of exceptional faculty participate in direct patient care. The ability to problem-solve and apply didactic knowledge to clinical situation is stressed. Professional and community service is a significant strength of the College as we strive to graduate humanistic individuals who develop the capacity to deliver
high quality healthcare with compassion and dignity.
NYCPM is fortunate to have an impressive array of dedicated full-time pre-clinical faculty who are available to work with students at all levels. Likewise, our location in New York City gives us a unique ability for clinical affiliations with a number of academic medical centers, including the Foot Center of New York, arguably one of the highest-volume facilities of its kind. We take pride in our international affiliations including major universities in Canada, Spain, Israel and India.
Admission to NYCPM is competitive, and our student body is diverse and includes students coming from many of the most highly ranked colleges and universities in the world.
Again, welcome to our website. I trust that you will find here what you are looking for, but if not, please feel free to contact us with your questions.
Michael J. Trepal, DPM
Vice President for Academic Affairs and Dean
