BECOME A MEMBER Join Our Community
We welcome Doctors of Podiatric Medicine (DPMs) at all stages of their careers. Whether you’re currently in postgraduate training, have an active practice, teach full-time, or have retired – you can contribute to the CPMA community.
CPMA has both local engagement and a national reach. You’ll benefit from the close-knit community here in Connecticut as well as the resources of the American Podiatric Medical Association (APMA).
Our members gain the exposure, credibility, and career development opportunities to effectively grow their podiatric practices. You’ll join our searchable network of podiatrists that patients across the country use to find the best possible care.
You’ll also benefit from involvement in our community, including mentorship opportunities. New and established podiatrists alike can gain meaningful insights and experiences from these connections.
To make membership accessible for all licensed DPMs, we calculate membership dues on a sliding scale, which accounts for your practice status and years of experience.
