DMU’s podiatric college had some great numbers recently related to the national board & surgical board qualification exams & I wanted to brag a bit about them…
• The first-time pass rate on Part I of the National Board Exam for the CPMS class of 2011 was 98%. The national pass rate was85%.
• The first-time pass rate on Part II of the National Board Exam for the CPMS class of 2010 was 93% compared to the national pass rate of 83%.
• The pass rate for the June 2010 administration of Part III of the National Board Exam for CPMS graduates was 100%. The national pass rate was 89%.
• The American Board of Podiatric Surgery recently released the first time pass rates for the Foot Surgery Qualification Exam. From 2005-2009 the pass rate for CPMS graduates was 89% compared to 76% for graduates of other podiatric colleges.
Way to go, podiatric faculty, staff & students!!
