The First Hybrid Western

The 2022 Western is back at The Happiest Place on Earth, with a new virtual option for Doctors of Podiatric Medicine to attend from home.

Onsite Experience

The face-to-face experience is back, but with limited capacity for onsite attendees and exhibitors. Onsite exhibits will be available to peruse in the exhibit hall with refreshments and break areas for you to catch up with the old friends and colleagues you've missed!

The General Sessions for DPMs will be 3 and a half days, Thursday through Sunday.

Podiatric Medical Assistants will have one day of either administrative or clinical training on Friday (please make your choice when registering), with sexual harassment prevention training included on Saturday. Further program details to come.

The onsite experience is only available to registrants who select the onsite registration option.

Onsite attendees, including DPMs and PMAs, shall scan their badges twice daily to earn Continuing Education Contact Hours (CECH). 

Please see the COVID-19 Updates tab for information on the venue before registering.

Virtual Experience

Due to popular demand, The 2022 Western will offer the same virtual experience through the Socio app as we did in 2021. The General Sessions for DPMs will be live streamed over 3.5 days for virtual attendees. Virtual attendees will have access to the Virtual Expo.

There will be no virtual program for PMAs in 2022.

Virtual attendees must attend via the meeting app and will not have access to the face-to-face sessions or exhibits. Virtual DPM attendees shall sign-in for CECH via the app twice daily.


Please select either an Onsite or Virtual ticket for your attendance type when registering (no refunds will be provided for incorrect selection). Click the Register tab at the top to register.



Only the first 300 DPMs and 30 PMAs will be able to use a promo code, so register today!


App Preview Dates: June 16-22, 2022
Onsite and Virtual Meeting Dates: June 23-26, 2022
