  6. PODIATRYPREP.org on the RISE

    Dr. Steven Klasko, the president of Thomas Jefferson University in Philadelphia and CEO of Jefferson Health, says that medical schools have the recruiting process all wrong.

    In an age of advanced technology, they’re still choosing students who can reel off organic chemistry compounds, rather than screening for qualities like critical thinking, entrepreneurship and empathy. Once students arrive, they’re being asked to spend years on rote memorization.

    It’s a system designed to “suck the creativity out of physicians,” Klasko said, while encouraging them to compete with each other, rather than collaborate.

    Thus, the “raison de’tra” of PodiatryPrep.org testing psychometrics is confirmed.


  7. About PODIATRYPREP.org

    PP.org was created by podiatric physicians and surgeons who wanted to make studying for podiatric certifying, MOC, state licensure and relate exams as concise and simple as possible.

    Content was provided by over 175 physicians, health-care providers, and podiatric surgeons. We believe the key to passing is to replicate exam conditions. Our mission is to engineer and foster these conditions while providing high-yield, top quality content – designed to help you PASS.

    Today – this includes technology like data analytics, AI and the newer CBT – CPC and COGNITIVE styled clinical scenario questions that are making the tests extremely rigorous.


  8. CUDOS

    If you think there’s even the smallest chance that these study guides will help you, you owe it to yourself to try them out.

    Don’t let fear or doubt stand in the way of what could be your best opportunity to achieve the test score you need to fulfill the dream you deserve; as a Board Certified Podiatric Physician and Surgeon!

    Dr. Alexander


    Critical thinking is the analysis of facts [SOAP] to form patient centric judgment.

    The subjects of podiatric medicine, orthopedics, wound care and surgery is complex, and critical thinking for test preparation includes the rational, skeptical, unbiased analysis, or evaluation of factual medical evidence.

    With our knowledge based content files, QAs, tools, techniques and assistance, critical thinking can move from a largely self-directed, self-disciplined and self-monitored exercise, to become acquired, learned and self-corrective thinking. It presupposes assent to our rigorous standards of excellence and mindful command of their use. It entails effective communication and problem-solving abilities as well as a commitment to overcome native egocentrism and socio-centrism. All of which are our goals and objectives for adult learner colleagues.

    This is the emerging new philosophy of the modern board exams; and our “Raison Detra”.
    Study Well!
