Temple University School of Podiatric Medicine offers coursework and clinical programs leading to the Doctor of Podiatric Medicine (DPM) degree in four years. The DPM curriculum fully prepares students for post-graduate residency training.
Courses in the DPM program begin and end at various times throughout the year, with several courses overlapping. This staggered schedule reduces the number of courses being taken concurrently and eliminates the high number of final examinations students take.
The decision to grant any accommodation based on the impact of a disability rests with the office of Disability Resources and Services (DRS). Therefore, any student who has a need for special accommodation based on the impact of a disability should immediately contact Disability Resources and Services at 215-204-1280 in 100 Ritter Annex. Once the student has received approval from the DRS, the student should then contact the Assistant Dean for Educational Affairs with a copy of their DRS approved paperwork for accommodation. Additionally, once approval is acquired, the Office of Educational Affairs will notify the appropriate Course Directors.
