The FIP-IFP feels it is of utmost importance to support and recognize individuals who, through their vision and commitment to their profession, are making outstanding contributions to the fields of podiatric practice. As such, each year FIP-IFP honors those who have demonstrated commendable work and dedication in areas which parallel the overall FIP-IFP mission.
The FIP-IFP awards should be submitted 30 days before the AGM to the President and the Executive Director with a letter of support and the nomination form. All applications will be reviewed by the FIP-IFP Executive Board.

the FIP-IFP Lifetime Achievement Award,
