For nearly 50 years, the Tennessee Podiatric Medical Association has been the leading voice for podiatric physicians and surgeons, representing over 70% of licensed DPMs in Tennessee. The TPMA is the most influential organization in the state promoting, supporting, and protecting the practice of podiatric medicine. 

Membership with TPMA includes membership with American Podiatric Medical Association. Both national and state membership dues are determined on a sliding scale in relation to your practice status and number of years in practice, along with other factors. The APMA and TPMA membership year runs from June 1 to May 31. Memberships are approved at the state level by TPMA.
