To the Class of 1984:
On behalf of the Trustees and the Faculty, my congratulations upon your accomplishments. You have completed four rigorous years of study and are well qualified as Doctors of Rodlatric Medicine. We wish you much happiness and success in your chosen field of podlatric medicine. All of us are confident that this will be accomplished.
Webster defines success as ’the achievement of something desired, planned or attempted . You have taken the first steps toward achieving a rewarding lifetime career. You have goals and aspirations. Careful planning and careful management will assure fulfillment of those goals.
William Jennings Bryan said, “success is not searching for you. You must do the seeking. Destiny is not a matter of chance, it is a matter of choice; it is not a thing to be waited for, it Is a thing to be achieved. Success Is not measured only In worldly goods. Success Is measured by the respect of others, self-esteem, and participation in your community as a total person. Set your goals high, and then spend every day doing those things that will assure meeting those goals.
We will be Interested in your progress and we will be pleased to hear of your accomplishments. This is your home and we want you not only to return home often, but to be an active participant in our growth. Let us know what you arc doing. Let
us know how we can improve. Let us know how we can help you. By
working together, podiatric medicine will continue to flourish as a health profession. Remember, again, that each day and the activities of that day contribute toward your status as a health professional. We are proud of you, your families are proud of
you, and we want you--now and always--to have pride in

To the Class of 1984:
Congratulations on your completion of a medical education that I feel has provided you with the finest in breadth and scope to perform ns a podiatric physician and surgeon.
Your worthy efforts will enable you to continue your quest for knowledge and perfection in an ever expanding body of scientific knowledge. You have gained the necessary skills to continue your education in the challenging field of podiatric medicine and surgery. We must always use this knowledge for the integrity and benefit of the patient. Ultimately the improvement in mankind's ability to function unrestricted and without crippling disabilities is the aim of podiatric medicine.
You should take great pride in your achievement. Although American medicine has a preeminent recognition on a world wide basis, the real pride of this country’s health care professions is podiatric medicine. No other nation has ever provided its citizens with physicians of such specialized knowledge and ability for the ailments of the foot as the Doctor of Podiatric Medicine.

Dear Class of 1984:
Let me extend my sincere congratulations upon your graduation! You are "stellar performers". I know, professionally, you will have a "long-run" success. In some respects it seems like such a short while ago that you and I arrived at the "Great White Way" of Pennsylvania College of Podiatric Medicine to find quickly that there truly is "no business like..." being a doctor of podiatric medicine. We have certainly learned in those four years!
I recall so clearly how enthusiastic and apprehensive each of you were as we first met - some in SARP, others at Orientation. The parking lot was full, everyone arriving, bag and baggage. Even the cadavers were rumored to be arriving - at 3 am (strictly a rumor). You brought, as a class and as individuals, the willingness to work together, the individuality to disagree and the originality to arrive at a meaningful consensus for all. You did work harder than you have ever worked, and some days succeeded less well than you were accustomed, but, by December, you basically knew you were going to succeed. With foresight you used good judgement to take the depth of human resources provided by the faculty, administration and staff, sorting for yourselves the world of reality.
You were "troupers" as you met the challenges of National 8oards, academic and clinical experiences, externships, and finally the run for the residency. You even managed to keep your sense of humor. As personal relationships developed, some of you began families and watched them grow, and your indebtedness mounted. You never failed to share your time and talents with us, accomplish improvements, and set guidelines which make PCPM and all of us better.
There is no such thing as "overnight stardom". Worthwhile achievements come from hard study, commitment and tenacity. This class has a maturity that will set the pace for many others.
Once again I sense enthusiasm and apprehension: enthusiasm because this goal is near completion and well done; apprehension because this is only the beginning of many challenges both for you and PCPM. As you leave us now, know that you are appreciated for all that you have been and all that you have shared. We will miss you.
As a personal note, I want to thank you for these past four years: the many good times together as well as the stimulating differences and discussions. Out of it always came, for roe, a renewed commitment and deeper relationship. Your "leading role at the Academy" begins your professional Impact. You have the capability to make the difference and we will have a finer profession because of you.

ARTHUR E. HELFAND, D.P.M.
To a man who has been an ever present example of committment to us. Committment to family, to education, and to the profession of Podiatry. As we begin our careers as podiatric physicians, may we take with us the balance of priorities and the dedication to the profession that Dr. Helfand has demonstrated to us throughout our four years at PCPM.
We, the Class of 1984, dedicate our yearbook to you, Dr. Helfand, with our thanks. May you always enjoy it.

Topic: Letter From The Editors
I. Putting the Yearbook together
A. In putting this Yearbook together we encountered a variety of problems:
1. collecting page materials from the Seniors
2. getting people to volunteer to help out
3. getting everyone together in the same place at the same time
4. trying to have everything ready for the deadlines
5. trying to decide whether to order out for pizza or Chinese
B. As time went by we came to appreciate the significance of the Yearbook
1. the Yearbook can actually be considered an historical document as it commits to print our life and times here at PCPM
2. the Yearbook is a keepsake that we can treasure always
3. looking back you'll find that some pictures are worth more than a thousand words
II. Closing statements
A. The last 4 years have been like no other we will ever experience:
1. there were good times and bad, laughter and tears, joys and disappointments
2. through it all we managed to work well together
B. The hardest page of the Yearbook to put together was this page. We wanted to keep the tone light, but still get some important points and sentiments across. All the sweat and time that went into this book was worth it, for this is a class well worth remembering. So, in parting we'd like to say:
Congratulations, Good Luck, Good Health and Prosper............and. . . "SEE YOU AT HER-
Also, a note of thanks goes to:
JOHN HARRIS, our Advisor
PHIL KLEIN, our Yearbook Rep
CARRIE PATRICK for her invaluable assistance
. . . and especially to JOHN and JENNIFER MEININGER who
were always willing to lend a hand

Rather than quote George Orwell, or give scholarly advice, I'll simply say, "Thanks".
Thanks for your support, your attention, your patience. Thanks for being inquisitive, optimistic, tolerant. Thanks for stimulating my sense of humor - and maintaining yours.
In that Alma Mater translates to "fostering Mother", I have only two pieces of advice: visit often and send money!
Voted Best Clinician by the Class of 1984
My best wishes to the Class of '84. Accomplishment, as you have found, is not easy; it takes enormous hard work and oersistance. High scholastic grades af obuifimg a residency are important ficro s in Tm tire success, but without a relentless appetite for self improvement, a constant search for answers to questions you are not certain of, a stubborn persistance to achieve your goals, success will not be yours.
You have the potential to fulfill all your goals. You are bright and well trained. This is only the beginning!

ACT I, SCENE I
•Preface to the reader: remember that ridicule is the highest form of flattery !!
The Class of 1984 was conceived slowly throughout the school year of 1979-80; and it was born from the loins of PCPM in August 1980. One-hundred-thirty-five stong, we came in all shapes and sizes, and from many strange and faraway lands: Utah, Vietnam, Scranton... some even came from the scarred and tragically wartorn wasteland known as New Jersey. Many occupational backgrounds were represented in this newly formed class of 1984: from teachers to plumbers to professional students... one of our classmates even ran track!!
Our first experience with Podiatry school life came with that ever-popular event known as "Orientation", which went off without a hitch. In our little groups wc were shuffled from place to place like little lost SHEEP RBC's in some unsuspecting E-rosette (in clinic jackets that smelled more like the plastic wrapper than the toejamb they would come to resemble in the not too distant future...) During
I those first two days we became slightly acquainted with a few of our colleages and some of the faculty and administration. We knew that we were hot stuff... college gradu-
there" (aka the male genital anatomy) from Thelma Chen, who of course learned everything she knew about the subject from years of textbook study. Anyway, let's face it, teaching yourself anatomy from a set of books written in
Is ‘es. . . here in Podiatry school. . . mature "Student Doc-•rs" (the thrill of that particular title quickly wore off). . . ;tting an education that would be totally applicable to our tore as Podiatrists. As time unfolded we would discover lat this wasn't exactly the case. Perhaps most amazing was ie fact that the "Residency Hounds" began to surface ren at that early date. While many of us worried about aking it through the first trimester, others were planning eir bobbing strategies to unfold in the coming years. We ere about to embark on a journey that could only be iscribed as neat!
Yes, in those first few weeks in Podiatry school we were meet many people: Frank Edema, Steve Frank, Frank fection, Frank Lescosky, Frank Pus, Frank Roosevelt Bou- ard, and last but not the least benign, Frank Conway. . . lese guys must have all been related). In Histology our iss could best be compared with a liver lobule. There isted there different "zones" based upon one's distance m Dr. Conway; from proximal to distal we have: the na Rather Interestaris, the Zona Intermedia and, of urse, the Zone of Permanent Repose. If, for some reason, u don't remember much of the liver (and if by chance u want to), please refer to Bloom and Fawcett. Leeson d Leeson won't have it. . . . "It's a piece of junk." Coach Harrington put our team into the real spirit of ngs right from the start. He had a way of making us feel od with his rah-rah speeches even when we knew things :re going sour. In his uplifting tone of voice he would tell to, "Review today's material; read a bit ahead each night;
d for God's sake, know your objectives!-------and I prom-
I'll have those Embryo handouts to you tomorrow." rariably, we'd have to close our eyes, drop back ten ds, and punt.
Knatomy was, you will recall, a self-taught course as we d only three lectures: One on the heart, one on the head j neck, and one scintillating firsthand report on "down
British of all things was not an easy task as two of our earliest casualties. Bob Skrypeck and Pete Felbeck, soon discovered. All was not lost as these two did manage to transfer to Dental school, owing it all to our great background in head and neck anatomy. (The most memorable thing retained is that there are two things that supply taste to the anterior surface of the tongue.)
Let's not forget Dr. Churchill; heartbroken from the previous class's failure rate, she decided to make our fantastic voyage around the Circle of Willis, past the Tentorium Cerebelli, and through the upper motor neurons a bit less lesion-laden. Abandoning the time-honored percent system, she replaced it with a grading method that made it almost impossible to fail. . . repeat almost. .. after all, she needed someone to keep her company in the summer.
And who could ever forget all those memorable lectures given by those Wizards of Intro to Podiatry: Lyons and Shapiro. Class was actually to meet every other week due to Dr. Shapiro's (the original Invisible Man) nebulous "prior committments"... guess they just forgot to tell us about it! ACT I, SCENE II
Second term swooped upon us by surprise just after Thanksgiving as we were introduced to the comedy team of "Al" Pitkow and "Tom" Davis, who took time out from their busy Saturday Night Live schedules to tag-team-teach the mysteries of Physiology. After wrestling with Pitkow's mind-boggling Tales of _jhe Excitable Membrane we are only now beginnng to understand what Davis taught us: "Remember that the heart is like wringing out a telephone booth. . . or is it like wrapping your thyroid with Saran wrap... or is it like Addison's with Kennedy's bull testes... wait!. . . who stole my insulin?. . . I'm flying around the room!!— overload. .. lub, dub... lub, dub. .. lub, dub."
Lower Extremity Anatomy, the Marine Corps of Podiatry school, was headed by Field Marshall Bruce Hirsch. Ruling his class with an iron pelvis, he insisted that we learn three things: A tubercle is not the same as a tuberosity, a fossa is not the same as a foramin, and most importantly, printing your name is definately not the same as writing it! Surely we all remember when Dr. Hirsch proved himself a compe-
F P.k ,hlent artist when he attempted a drawing on the midterm... half the class maintained that it was a sketch of the tibia while the other half recognized it as the third metatarsal. Regardless of the correct answer, there was no denying that his drawing was one of... a shaft. For everything south of the patella Dr. DiPrimio was flown in direct from the heart of South Philly. Each time he stood in front of the class in his dark pin-striped suit and gently lifted his collection of ragged bones from his violin case, he brought new meaning to the phrase, "Yo, Falconio!"
Drs. Fenton and Burke were the First Class Act of the first year. They were both well prepared, both had offices on the fifth floor, and they both had different last names! Oh my Gosh! Coincidence? I think not! ... for we saw far too many coincidences in this course. For a moment, picture if you will... an amino acid... alone, yet not alone... swirling endlessly in the never-ending tempestual sea of metabolism. . . a veritable jungle of activity, yet retaining inherent stability. . . synthesizing, catabolizing, metamorphosizing, from one compound to another. There in a strange, mysterious world, neither in daylight or darkness... teetering on the very brink of reality. Yes, these and countless other paradoxes were a commonplace occurance, and wedged precariously in some dark corner of our memories still lies the terrifying realm of.....Biochemistry Zone
And what of Dr. Burns? In just twelve short weeks we
learned two entire pages of biomechanics definitions!.
. without him ever cracking a smile! Oh!, and let's not forget that this time was also shared with Marvin Jacoby... (he's almost for real; just saddle him up with spurs on your heels.) After our time spent with Dr. Jacoby (the 1981 Poster Child for Congcntial Hip Dysplasia,) most of us were very thankful we weren't enrolled in the six-year stint for the DPM-PhD in Biomechanics!
As the first year wound to a close, we had mixed emotions. . . deliriously happy to be Vi of the way toward our goal (DPM), but terrified of the years that lay ahead (thanks to horror stories told by upper classmen.) In retrospect, we made some friends and had some good times: our Holiday Party at Society Hill Club was a huge success!. . . and our end-of-the-year picnic at Cooper River Park gave the animals amongst us a chance to shine: brutally rending the garments from the back of R. Pierce and turning his ever-
present nametag into a worthless ball of molten plastic. By the end of the first year we had lost a few more students: some to med school, some to other podiatry schools and still others. . . just lost!!
ACT II, SCENE I
•Warning! This section may be confusing, even for the R.Ph.
Our chests puffed with pride (and some with kleenex) at the idea of almost being a doctor, we met to begin our second year in Room 319. "Old 319", as we fondly called it, was the think-tank on the third floor for those well versed in anatomy, biochemistry and phys... physio... kwashiork.
____physiology ... whew!! We began second year thrilled
at the prospect of finally learning something "applicable".
Our lives were filled with spoon-shaped nails and we found ourselves dodging bullet-like spores from the many types of perfect fungi.
Hearing tales told by those who had trod this path before, we were somewhat apprehensive at the thought of facing another nine months of cutting classes to snooze, ordering pizzas at midnight, and watching our liver enzymes skyrocket thanks to local clubs. . . could we take another year of the "good life"? In retrospect, the workload was greater than the first year's had been, but we were appreciative (usually) of the seemingly more relevant nature of the "Beast".
ACT II, SCENE II
Dr. Krausz made certain we could all spell Saracoptes scabei just in case we intended to teach Classical Greek Podiatry in the future. King Harold showed us nude babies while insulting Paul Good... and we had quizzes to determine whether we would post in varus, post in valgus, or post no bills. And speaking of posting, the test grades were no longer a secret... it soon became a spectator sport after grades were posted watching a student with a 25% act as if he she had aced the test. The Sixth Floor finally caught on and decided to restore anonymity by using our names instead of our numbers.
Micro taught us that Staph was resitant. .. but we were susceptible. . . to dim lights and long lectures. Many of us ended class with our notes firmly imprinted on our foreheads ... if not our brains. Dr. Dziarski proved to be the class of this show. Though at times he was difficult to understand because of his heavy Irish accent, his lectures were of the highest quality. Dr. Axler kept us on the edge of our seats with tales of capsids and RNA viruses that reproduced like lustful heathens! Dr. Abramson used insight and compassion in his approach: when we were nearly down for the count, our highlighters bruised and battered, massive hematomas shrouding our once proud facies, he steered our recovery in Merril-Lynch fashion through all of the bull. We were fortunate to have lectures on cell structures and microbial genetics from the only gram positive coccus ever to hold a teaching position in all
of Podiatry.....Bohdan Terleckyj. We soon learned that
caffeine was the drug of choice for this chronic pest. We began to fear fecal fallout more than nuclear fallout and learned that somehwere out there ... indiginous to society . . . lurk more microbes than R. has hockey shorts!
We were assured that although some of the materialcovered would seem meaningless to us at that point, their extreme relevance would become increasingly more apparent as we matured in our careers. Some of the fascinating topics etched in our very craniums which are already proving their invaluability are those such as: 1) The sexual cycle of Wucheria bancrofti 2) Peculiarities of stool factories and the effects of tetracycline there on 3) If we'd ever see peptidoglycan in a cell wall we'll know how to treat it. One important question raised by star-student Pointdexter "Biff" Atheras was, "Hey, what's the story with corn?!??"
Pathology was no picnic either. This department, led by Tony Award Winner "Broadway" Sid Arden (star of the hit
the book was a point of contention for the longest time; while Dr. Seuss wanted to call it One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Dead Fish, Dr. Whincman favored Green Eggs and Radiodermatitis. Memorable things did occur in this class that we's like to record for posterity: We all recall a certain Friday morning when one of our colleagues was literally wheeled into class, bottle of rum still firmly attached to his right hand, with the visible battle scars of the previous night's bachelor party etched onto his face and body. And let's not forget those poor souls from Becker who dared to turn on the lights in the projection room during a slide presentation. The wrath of Whineman sent them scurrying down the hall with their tails between their legs, wishing they'd never been born. Oh yes, and just remember those immortal words of wisdom, "When voting for the Teacher of the Year, be advised it is not a popularity contest!"
And if Dr. Whineman thought he was perfect, Dr. Jacob knew that he was. Giving credit where it is due however, our resident schlarp aneschlezheolozghischt gave us some of our best lectures of second year. Not to build him up too much, it was kind of a jzhlerclk phizhlishin's move to punish us for poor attendence by forcing us to read the handout on cancer chemotherapy. This manuver was in lieu of a lecture that he couldn't give anyway because of a "prior commitment". Luckily for us whenever a question on cancer popped up, methotrexate was always the answer of

consisted of an array of faculty the likes of which even James Watt would be proud: a Korean, a Philippino, two Jews and a Scotsman. "Broadway's" scintillating lectures forced us to take the full compliment of cuts lest our brains become maximally pronated and locked. And speaking of cuts, thanks to Bev Poulson each of us managed to enjoy our full allotment of them---some of the more enterpris-
ing even managed to purchase a few extra from the more financially destitute members of the class.
Pathomechanics opened our eyes and our minds: taught by King H. D. (Howdy Doody) Schoenhaus, we learned that the Root of all evil was not greed, but uncontrollable pronation. If we could invert the sub-talar joints of prominent heads of state we'd change the course of history. You see, in severe pronation, it's not only that the sub-talar joint is out of control, the abnormal forces are actually transmitted clear up to the sphenoid bone at the floor of the brain. This produces a pathological action upon the precentral sulcus
causing personality shifts__hence the well known clinical
entity: The Pronatory Personality. (Adolf Hitler and Josef Stalin were both severe pronators.)
Dr. Stephen Whineman (the man that Saturday Night Live used as their role model for the character of Steve and Wendy Whiner) was our host for Roentgenology. We looked for forward to this course with sincere anticipation of learning how to interpret radiographs of the foot. Disappointed, we discovered that the only soft tissue or bony pathology that could possibly occur is... pronation. On the bright side, each Friday morning we did review a bit of arithmatic... Dr. Whineman's forte seemed to be counting to twenty-five. We probably shouldn't be too hard on him as he was under a good deal of pressure at the time. You see, he and Dr. Seuss were co-authoring a comprehensive reference that was to revolutionize Podiatry. The title of
choice. Speaking of questions, many a fingernail was chewed to the proximal IPJ upon reading 500 pages of notes and knowing the test would consist of a whooping fifteen questions!
Orthopedics with Dr. Whitney was like visiting the dark side of the moon. With lectures brought to us directly from deep inside the subtalar joint we learned that pronation was not the only pathology of the foot. We also found that if Merton Root was obsessed with the frontal plane and Jim Ganley was obsessed with the transverse plane that Dr. Whitney's heart and soul were definately in the astral plane. Combining our vivid imaginations with his Triplane Taxonomy we could come up with many problems just screamingfor us to treat.
The latter part of the year saw us finally getting some pertinent clinical courses: Physical Diagnosis, Introduction to Podiatric Surgery, and Introduction to (real) Surgery. The last course mentioned couldn't have been easier to pass even if they'd given us a copy of the final before the actual exam. Hey! Wait a minute... they did! Wouldn't you know it. . . . there always has to be one in the crowd: One guy, whose name won't be mentioned (but his initials are Ed. Fremer.) really screwed up. He knew the FBI had just installed new TV monitors in room 319... this didn't seem to matter as ol' Ed still carried in his cheat sheats.
For those of us who chose to catch up on our sleep during Clinical Observation, our first day of treating patients in summer clinic produced quite the sympathetic discharge. . . more than one student, upon being handed that first chart froze in their own puddle of urine and pleaded, ''What do I do Now?”
National Boards was quite another surprise. We had the pleasure of abusing Dr. Whincman, for he was under the belief that ”B” was the answer for the test. Lucky for him, he just barely passed. .. his good fortune was owed to the fact that for many of the questions, the answer was ”B' ACT III
The third year was an interesting potpourri of clinic rotations, allied facilities, long afternoons in class, and the advent of. . . that's right!. . . patellar orthotics, for those industrious students trying to get ahead in the residency game. Thrilled at the prospect of being through with the basic sciences, but horrified at the stories of the coming year, we waited in silent anticipation at our "Welcome back coffee and donuts”, semi-prepared to be turned loose in the nail farm. This year, we were destined to spend our grueling mornings healing the thousands of indigents literally beating down the fifty-cent shower curtains attempting to experience our mystical mending powers. This energy seemed to flow as we'd engage in "The Laying On Of The Goniometers"... and of course, we didn't do this alone: we have THE BOYS to thank for their guidance. . . The Clinic Boys, that is: Karpo, Mags and Kwas.
In clinic, in our comprehensive history taking, we became aware of the existance of many new and exciting disorders from which our patients claimed to have suffered. . . Fleabites, Fireballs of the Eucharist, The Grouch, and Two Buckets of Locusts were several of the more interesting diseases encountered. Thanks to the vast surgical experience most of us had during this year, we became artists of the pre-op workup: from shuffling patients form the insurance office to the phlebotomy lab; to explaining why they needed CAT scans, rectal exams, and adrenal function tests for a simple P and A (after all, we wouldn't want to give a phone booth to an Addison). Each afternoon following clinic we'd don our straight jackets and file into the dimly-lit room 236 (that well-padded cell on the sec-
ond floor in which each of us had earned a rightful spot.)
It could have been the effects of too much time being spent in our windowless padded cell but, as a group, we really started to weird out: arguing about a vote to determine whether or not we needed to hold a lottery to see who would get to participate in the lottery is a prime example. Our attitudes changed concerning grades: from the timid students we were first and second years trying our best for a good grade and hoping that they didn't try to flunk us. . . to the cocky third years shooting for the Almighty ”P” and daring them to even try and flunk us (this attitude reached its zenith at the end of the year and can be summed up in just one word: ''Unity''!) Even our attitudes towards our fellow students took a turn for the worse... In a situation where a premium should be placed on learning and intelligent inquisitivness, we had the audacity to limit the number of stupid questions to two per student per lecture. Some people were so embarrassed by our sudden shift to the left, they changed their names hoping that they could dissociate from this beast (the Class of 84); but hiding behind names like "Phil” and "Berkley" didn't fool anyone.
.. we still knew who they were. And, in an effort to broaden our scope, we instituted an exchange program with the other Podiatry schools and made our first one to one trade with California... Lee Techner for Bart Edwards. It's still too early to judge the degree of success of the swap.
Our classes during third year covered a wide range of topics. Some were well taught, while others were... well... you get the idea. Truly spanning this spectrum were the dreaded dynamic duo of third year... Derm and Neuro... to be discussed separately of course.
Derm was presented as a somewhat less than fascinating array of macules, vasculitities, purpuric marmorato, Hen-och-Schoenlein livido reticulares... and whatever else you can possibly imagine that is red and or bumpy. Also, we were lucky enough to be presented with Dermatogly-phics, the almost forgotten language of the skin specialists of Ancient Egypt. Imagine our delight! Yes, Dermatology did provide us with a great deal of useful. . .. zzzzzzz. .. Oh! So Sorry, just dozed off! Dr. Witkowski, while reading at Vi the speed of light, strove to make the course second to none by giving us every dermatological disease known to man. .. and quite a few extra he surely fabricated from his imagination. . . come on now, from where did he pull this one? Toasted Skin Syndrome.... what did he take us for, idiots?!?? Ah yes, and what about the 14,000 slides he so expertly blended into one two-trimester long, third-rate motion picture, the monotonic drone of which just seemed to sedate us into a nice nap? His best line of the year came early on, "Who's the note-taker for this lecture today. . . that Terrell babe again?"
On the other side of the coin-shaped lesion (or nummular, for you purists) was Dr. (Vampire) Bhatt. With his haunting stare and superb visual aids, his manner of instruction captured our consciousness the moment we entered the room. The most difficult time our class had with Dr. Bhatt was trying to coax him into giving us only 8 points on the midterm instead of the 12 he had originally intended. (We had hoped to sell the extra 4 points to Howard Nuss who had recently secured a position with the APA as the Council of Teaching Hospital's official "Test Point Broker". Mr. Nuss would in turn, sell the points to those of us who
17would require them after participating in the National Boards' "new, improved" method of scoring to be instituted on our Part IPs.) Anyway, back to Dr. Bhatt... he is to be congratulated on the quality of his lectures. Each was presented entirely from memory, yet the clarity and organization far exceeded that of the lectures given by most other members of our distinguished faculty.
Anesthesiology was a real "sleeper" of a course... that is, until the final grades came out. The posted grades had "ateramine"-like effect on 8 of the class members. The Anesthesiology Eight had officially come into being. With visions of ketamine nightmares looming on the horizon, the viii wrote for CAPS prn relief, with substitution permissible, of course, to make up for Dr. Green's vacated seat. Passing grades were induced and "Bier" block parties became the order of the day.
Dr. Harvey Lemont's Pod. Path, was another one of the few exceptions. He taught a course which was not only pertinent but it was organized, detailed and unusually punctate and sharply circumscribed. His exams were a challenge, but it was refreshing to find questions which were well written and clinically oriented.
Dr. Kidawa (say "Kee dah' vah"), whose armamentarium of wordage assisted in restoration of our recomforture that accurate prognostication of the status pertaining to adequate vascularization of the pedal extremities can be ascertained qualitatively and quantitaviely both auditorily and via visualization through the continual emission of diagnostic ultrasonic energy (i.e. Doppler), taught PVD. The above-mentioned technique permits accurate evaluation of each of the digits... from the hallucal toe to the minute quintal appendage. Of course, we didn't actually learn how to use the Doppler. Instead, we finished the course fully qualified to perform quadruple Circle-of-Willis angioplasties. As a result of our resultant Podiatric inadequacies, many of our patients succumbed to TIA's (transient interdigital attacks).
Our first exposure to Podiatric Surgery, although limited in terms of caseload, had no shortage when it came to didactics (but what else is new?). Between Dr. Novicki promoting Zimmer ("the biggest outfit going") and Dr. Man-dracchia as our fearless Silon baseship leader, we marched through sterile fields laden with Sta-pegs, pigs-in-holes, pigs-in-blankets and even Bone Boxes! from an era long past. . . but we still had no Embryo handouts to show for our struggles.
Our close encounter of the second kind with Dr. Whitney was one for the record books. He had some interesting thoughts on treating patients which were rather. . . unorthodox, to say the least. You surely recall him discussing one of his favorite topics (with his icon of Dudley Morton ensconed in his breast pocket); partially compensated, se-miconvex first ray elevato-cavus. The treatment of which is as follows: cast for a CMO for the symptomatic foot, posting the neutral position to the obturator inferior mode while keeping the first ray entirely off the ground. An alternative method that sometimes works is to place an RWCO (right wing cruiser orthotic) on the foot with the pathology and nail the other foot to the floor. Two days later, light them both on fire and stuff the ashes into someone's subtalar joint . . . yeah . . . yeah . . . let's go with it.
There were other incidents which left scars upon the Class of 84 as well. Dr. Bruno's brutal assault on Phil Dao
during a crutch-walking demonstration led to a widely publicized United Nations walkout by the South Vietnamese delegation. Not until the Department of Medicine sent a year's supply of analgesic balm (the odorless form, of course) to the U. N. did this protest end. Luckily for our sake, some succinct illustrations by Dr. Stowers helped clear up any confusion regarding the use of crutches. . . . And let's not forget that memorable session on muscle testing where our class volunteer made it an unparalled success by piercing through modesty and exposing to us more than we ever cared to see about the testing of certain muscles.
Dr. Helfand's course probably was applicable, but since the point was not specifically addressed in old tests we cannot say with any degree of certainty whether that statement is TRUE or FALSE. But seriously, we salute Dr. Helfand for his efforts and accomplishments as APA President, and we wish him continued success (as warden) at the James C. Guiffre Medical Center.
Dr. Jay transcended two semesters with his podo-acro-batics class. He expertly combined gymnastics with didactics in a manner which no one could duplicate (with the possible exception of Dr. Steven Kravitz). We learned such a voluminous amount of pediatrics that by the end of the year no one thought it necessary to do the externship at JFK-Phila. (much to Dr. Jay's chagrin). And who could forget that many students were brutally trampled in the stampede to Dr. Jay's office to turn in research topics in time to be exempted from the midterm. Fortunately, the more severely injured had their Q angles restored free of charge.
By the end of third year, our class, sick of seeing each other day in day out for the past few years, was beginning to grow apart. It was finally over, this year that they told us would seem to have no end. By now we knew how we would be spending the fourth year and for the most part, anticipated it with excitement. We could-hardly believe that in less than one year we would be graduating. . . and we had better gain as much clinical knowledge and experience as was possible... just in case. Yes, we had picked our externships, planned our heavy duty bobbing strategies, and officially. . . the residency hunt was on!
Our garbled thoughts and emotions about the third year can best be summed up in a song:
(To the tune of "Overkill" by Men At Work")
I can't get to sleep I worry about palliation Debriding down too deep Iatrogenic laceration Especially at night
I think about those PM presentations And hope they work out right Perhaps it's just imagination
Day after day We appear Night after night My heartbeat shows the fear Chip and clip and pad away
13I can't get to sleep Those lesions they keep reoccuring Reappoint 'em in six weeks Patients leaving and then returning Especially at night I think about those situations That might be surgerized And it's just overkill
I can't get to sleep These classes give me agitation Counting empty seats Or cutting without hesitation Working just to pass Doesn't give much consolation Or take 'em all to CAPS 'Cause it's just overkill
(D. Robin '84)
•For Your Information: Rearfoot varus has been chosen as the Official Deformity of the U.S. Summer Olympics
The news hit like a bomb; the replacement for Dr. Green was going to revamp our surgery check-off sheets. Dropped would be: surgical redressing, suture removal and xray interpretation. Added on would be: liver biopsy, lumbar puncture, and modified radical mastectomy. This, supposedly, is part of the 4th Reich plans to put PCPM in its rightful place as the World Foot Health Center. Yes, once again PCPM is forging new paths on the frontiers of podiatry in an effort to push our legal boundaries clear up to and including T3. Don't hold me to it, but this move may take us international!
Fourth year was very unlike any other that went before. Spending only a portion of the year at PCPM, we seemed to miss the important advances here at home that would mean more to us in our futures as Podiatrists than any residency any of us could procure. . . or not.
A significant portion of our last year was spent in extern-ships, rotating through various hospitals. We tended to get more experience in these few months than the many months we spent in clinic. Being familiar with the departments of PM, Diagnosis and Physical Medicine, many of us were impressed with with those departments found in real hospitals: Ob-Gyn, Gastroenterology and Oncology. . . imagine, an entire floor devoted solely to the diseases of the nail!
Some the research here at PCPM was being expertly conducted by the new Chairman of Chairman of Orthopedics. Dr. William Sanner, coming from the California School where biomechanics is the Force that governs the Universe, did some remarkable things with rohadur ''magic shovels": having already had limited success in the treatment of diverticulitis and spina bifida, he has at this writing submitted a proposal seeking approval for testing in those suffering from cryptorchidism.
The Podocardiology Department has recently announced that the Electrodynagram has already proved it-
self useful in the diagnosing of myo-metatarsal infarction (MMI) of the second metatarsal. News the implications of which are almost endless!
Dr. Lemont, no newcomer to Podiatric Research, is soon to publish the results of two projects he recently completed: He reported that he can completely cure uncompensated rearfoot varus with an IM injection of a modified "steroid cocktail" composed of Icc Kenalog 40, 2cc of Dewars Scotch whisky and 3cc of latex. It's been dubbed "Harvey's Bristol Cream Cocktail", and should receive FDA approval by the end of '84. Also, a small group working under Dr. Lemont's guidance have developed a MIS procedure for Morton's neuroma... implantation of a tiny nuclear warhead in the affected interspace. Thus far, the incidence of recurrance of the lesion has been 0% but, unfortunately, all the subjects have been mysteriously lost to follow-up.
Relatcdly, a new nail procedure has been described by Dr. Orowitz and is called the A and N. . . avulsion and nuclear destruction of the nail matrix. Alas, the total amount of destruction thus far has proven difficult to contain. He is, however, awaiting NRC approval for this procedure, the indications for which are similar for the outmoded P A.
The portion of the fourth year actually spent at PCPM was pretty much as we had expected: dumping all the paperwork onto our third years, filing in line for the countless pre-ops, and dodging PM charts as we perched in the "smoking lounge" (or the elevator lobby in a previous life). A nice change was spending afternoons in clinic instead of sitting in some boring lecture. Of course, being our usual selves, this didn't satisfy us either and then we had something else to bitch about. I guess you could say that on Wednesday afternoons. . . we finally got out Embreeville handouts!
Our only classes were Practice Management, Practice Radiology, and Practice-On The-Cadavers-Before-We-Turn-You-Loose... speaking of which, why did we have to take the practical even if we didn't take the course?? Why didn't we get the choice of taking the reverse option. . . that is, to take the course without the practical. Some things never change!
With all our visiting and bobbing for that special program out of the way, it's hard to imagine that we're almost through spending four years together. Hopefully, we've learned enough to practice if that Residency or Preceptor-ship hasn't come through. There are some of us who will continue to be students (hopefully not another fourth year at PCPM), whether it be on to Law School (Forensic Podiatry), Medical School (Podiatric Interns), or Dental School (for those of us who still keep in touch with Skrypeck and Felbeck) to treat the pronatory deformities of the temporomandibular joint.
With National Boards Part II behind us, graduation upon us, we look at what lies before us: whether we end up in solo practice, partnership, or... prison, hopefully some day we can all look back fondly at our years here at PCPM. Yes, on some occasion in the future we'll sit down, crack a bottle, crack open this book, and crack a smile.
Good Luck, Class of 1984... and thanks for the memories!Allen Atheras, D.P.M.

The value of life lies not in the length of days, but in the use we make of them; a man may live long, yet get little from life. Whether you find satisfaction in life depends not on your tale of years, but on your will.

Dear Mom and Dad,
Well, we finally made it. I most certainly couldn't have made it alone. Thanks so much for your sacrifices, support, love, and understanding.
No greater opportunity or obligation can fall the lot of a human being than to be a physician. In the care of suffering he needs technical skill, scientific knowledge, and human understanding. He who uses these with courage, humility, and wisdom will provide a unique service for his fellow man and build an enduring ediface of character within himself. The physician should ask of his destiny no more than this, and he should be content with no less.

A short dedication or a mere 'thank you' does not seem to be enough for all you've taught me and instilled in me: morals, values, pride. You were always there when I needed you. You allowed me to pursue my own dreams, in my own seemingly bizarre manner and I will forever respect you for this, I can only add that I am proud to be your son.
I also want to thank Bobbi, my Sisters, my Brothers-in-law, Maryann and my Nieces for
being so supportive and understanding of me.
I especially dedicate this occasion to the memory of my mother, Alma Cormier. My time with you was short, your lessons and memory, life-long.

Dip your foot in the dew and put A print of it on the floor,
And stew the fat of a brindle cat,
And say this o'er and o'er: -Corny! morny! bladey! dead!

Come grease my corn in the gray of the morn!

These years seemed to fly by so quickly.
Yet captured moments are remembered like deserts of time stretching endlessly.
A struggle to achieve and many anxieties seemed to reign in these four years, but joys and happiness were found along the way through friends and new experiences.
Was it all worth the effort?
I look now only to the future for my answers.
For this great opportunity, I'd like to thank my Mother, for without her constant love and undying support, my goals would not have been achieved Thank you, Mom . . . and I love youT Edward A. Schwartz,

B.A., Temple University
At this major turning point in my life and career, I would like to thank everyone who has helped me with special thanks to:
My Mother-in-law and Father-in-law - their kindness and devotion were superceded only by their generosity. I will never forget that.
My Mother - her encouraging words of wisdom served as a source of inspiration through some pretty rough times.
My Father - his hard line policies taught me to reach out and be only the best I could be, and he would always be there to push me back up if I fell.
My Wife - her dedication, tireless effort and unyielding faith in me made my life much easier during these long four winters. I love you, Eileen, and could never have made it without you.
My Son - for all the enjoyment he brings into my life by just being GEORCIE.James R. Smith, D.P.M.

Four years ago I took you from your family and friends to a place where we knew no one.
Each exam that I took you worried along with me, feeling as though it would never end.
Hopefully, these few words can express how much I am grateful to you for all your love and understanding these past four years.
Having you to come home to has made life easier and more pleasant.
I could not have done it without you!
I Love You Very Much, John
