SDN and Osmosis are teaming up to help you get set up for success this school year! We'll be covering study tips, healthy habits, and meeting mentors.
You are right that scope of DPM practice varies widely (no two states are even exactly alike). I believe a unified national scope of practice is needed and will bring more credibility to the profession and understanding of DPMs; that unified scope is an APMA and ACFAS goal right now.
Presently, I know Florida and Georgia are APMA "model states" (means they are states with a great DPM scope). I think Michigan, the home of the first pod residencies, is very likely to be another "model state."
I am fairly sure that South Carolina, NY, Minn, and some other states have a pretty limited scope of practice (essentially forefoot only).
This was actually our homework for 1st semester Intro to Pod class: we had to find out the scope of practice of our home state.
