Why consider a career in podiatric medicine?
• A Doctor of Podiatric Medicine (DPM) is a specialist in the prevention,
diagnosis, and treatment of lower extremity disorders, diseases and
• DPMs can specialize in a variety of areas such as surgery, orthopedics,
or public health. Besides these certified specialties, podiatrists may
practice a subspecialty such as sports medicine, pediatrics, dermatology,
radiology, geriatrics, or diabetic foot care.
• The DPM is a vital member of the health-care team. He or she is often the
first to detect symptoms of diabetes or peripheral vascular disease because
of the human foot’s interrelation with the rest of the body.

Pharmacy Career Success Spotlight
Kandis Backus, a fourth-year student in the University
of Mississippi School of Pharmacy, found a volunteer experience
to be inspiring. She not only discovered a career path but also
will have a paper published in Sexually Transmitted Diseases,
the journal of the American Sexually Transmitted Diseases
Association in February 2017.
Kandis Backus, University of
Mississippi School of Pharmacy
A Chicago native, Backus’ paper, “Trichomonas vaginalis treated
with boric acid in a metronidazole allergic female,” focuses on
research she conducted on HIV and sexually transmitted
infections while volunteering at the Open Arms Healthcare
Center in Jackson, which specializes in care for the LGBTI
community. After standard treatment was unsuccessful for a
patient diagnosed with the sexually transmitted infection trichomoniasis, Backus consulted literature
on treating the illness, eventually finding a cure in boric
While volunteering, Backus shadowed Billy Brown, an HIV
pharmacist at the VA Medical Center.
“Managing HIV disease can be very complicated and intimidating
at times,” Brown said. “Over the years I have witnessed both
pharmacy students and pharmacy residents who are initially
reluctant to interview an HIV-infected patient. Kandis never gave it a second thought. Our
patients enjoyed her because she did not only showcase her
passion for managing HIV disease, but more importantly, she
allowed her compassion for patients to reign supreme.”
Backus hopes her volunteer experience will lead to eventually
working with HIV patients in a clinical setting.
“I encourage other students to volunteer, to help them find
their passion,” Backus said. “Without this experience, I doubt
I would have developed a passion for HIV.”
During her time at Open Arms, she worked alongside Laura Beauchamps, then the clinic’s medical
director, researching literature, treating patients and
contacting their primary care physicians.
“Kandis was very motivated to learn
about [sexually transmitted infections] and HIV care and
prevention at our clinic,” Beauchamps
said. “I think she will have a brilliant future as a
