Dear Fellow British Columbians and Podiatrists:
As the newly elected president of the British Columbia Podiatric Medical Association, I am proud and honoured to serve this vibrant organisation.
Our field of practice is rapidly changing. As medical professionals, we must constantly be learning and adapting to new technologies and treatments that we can bring to our patients. We must strive to provide the highest quality of care possible, which will ultimately benefit both our patients and our community.
At the same time, it is important that we maintain our focus on research, understanding, and best practices. Through sharing knowledge and collaborating on projects, we can continue to progress the field of podiatry.
It is also vital that we stay active and involved in policy changes and initiatives that will shape the future of podiatry in British Columbia. We have a responsibility to advocate for our profession, and stand up for the rights of our patients.
I look forward to working together with you over the next two years, to ensure that our association is at the leading edge of podiatric medicine.
Ian Yu, DPM, FACFAS, DABPS

President, BC Podiatric Medical Association
I would like to welcome you to the web site of the BC Podiatric Medical Association (BCPMA). I hope that you will find this site both helpful and informative.
For patients, this site should provide you with up-to-date foot health information as well as easily facilitate the locating of a nearby podiatrist to help with your foot-health related issues.
For members, this site should provide you with an interactive forum to communicate with others, pay dues or fees, register for educational events and post classified ads.
BCPMA members complete rigorous training and maintain continuing podiatric medical education hours to stay current on leading edge techniques and treatments to help their patients in as best and efficient a manner as possible.
BC podiatrists strive to be leaders in foot health care, both surgically & non-surgically. If you have any foot-health or related issues, a BCPMA podiatrist is your best first choice!
Wishing you good foot health!
Howard Green, DPM, DABPS, FACFAS
