The Iowa Podiatric Medical Society (IPMS) is a professional organization of podiatrists located throughout the state of Iowa.
Podiatry is the branch of medicine specializing in the care and treatment of the human foot and ankle in health and disease.

The preparatory education for most DPMs includes four years of undergraduate work, followed by four years in an accredited podiatric medical school and then a three-year residency program.
