The Residency Education Resource Center (REdRC) is an online educational resource to supplement the education of podiatric residents. It is a joint collaborative effort of the American Podiatric Medical Association (APMA) and four of its affiliate organizations. The participating affiliate organizations are the American Society of Podiatric Surgeons (ASPS), the American College of Foot and Ankle Orthopedics and Medicine (ACFAOM), the Association of Extremity Nerve Surgeons (AENS), and the American Society of Podiatric Medicine (ASPM).
The lecture schedule on REdRC.org is based on the competencies identified by the Council on Podiatric Medical Education (CPME) in CPME publication 320, Standards and Requirements for Approval of Podiatric Medicine and Surgery Residencies (July 2015). The lectures are 20–40 minutes in length and can be viewed by the resident at any time. Residency directors will have access to the lectures and a record of activity by their residents. The lectures are designed to stimulate discussion among the residents and the training faculty at the residency site.
The initial year of the REdRC, July 1, 2012–June 30, 2013, featured lectures for the first-year podiatric resident. The second year saw the addition of lectures for the second-year resident, and the third year of the REdRC added the final lectures for the third-year resident.
The online education program has a yearly subscription rate of $300 per resident; however, due to the generous support of our sponsors, the yearly subscription rate for the 2015–16 residency training year has been waived for all residents! So subscribe to the REdRC today!
Subscriptions to the REdRC are only available to residents who are also current APMA members. Learn more about joining APMA.
