    Ohio College of Podiatric Medicine (OCPM) Internship Program

    The Ohio College of Podiatric Medicine (OCPM) in Independence, Ohio, offers pre-professional short internships every January, June, and July. Cost for the internship program would be the applicant's transportation to Independence, Ohio; most other expenses are covered except for some meals and housing in local dormitories. The program provides an opportunity for prospective students to visit our college, meet our faculty/staff, observe in our clinics and hospitals, and to determine if podiatric medicine is something they would like to pursue as a career. Applicants should have completed at least one year of college and be in good academic standing.
