DPM (Chiropodist): Ontario law currently prohibits the registration of new podiatrists. Practitioners identified as DPM (Chiropodist) have graduated from a Doctor of Podiatric Medicine/DPM program in Canada or the United States and are authorized to practise podiatry elsewhere in Canada, but are limited to practise as chiropodists in Ontario. They are full members of the OPMA.
Chiropodist: This member is an Associate Member of the OPMA, but is a graduate of a chiropody, not a podiatry, program and is authorized to practise in Ontario only as a chiropodist.
Please note that you do not need a physician referral to see a PODIATRIST.
