Our Mission

The West Virginia Podiatric Medical Association (WVPMA) is a state component of the American Podiatric Medical Association.

Our chief purpose is to achieve higher standards of medical practice in our profession, to raise the standard of education required of those physicians who practice podiatry, to secure the enactment of proper laws governing the practice of podiatry and to create an informed public opinion on all matters relating to the profession.

We advocate, educate and legislate the practice of podiatric medicine in West Virginia.
