The Academy serves as the FIP's primary educational arm which wil regularly bring together those engaged in the education of podiatirsts throughout the world. This could include faculty, both clinical and basic science, researchers, cirriculum developers, assessors, administrators, and students. The Academy will provide them with an external source of reference and guidance and keep them informed of developments in the podiatric medical education community throughout the world.

“The primary purpose of the Academy,” according to Dr. Vince Hetherington, Academy President, “is the enhancement of podiatric medical education worldwide. The Academy will do all it can to strengthen podiatric education whether in countries with a large number of podiatrists or in those with smaller numbers. It is our hope that the Academy will stimulate growth in podiatric programs while strengthening the teaching skills of faculty worldwide."
