    In New York State, most pandemic restrictions have already been rescinded to non-healthcare facilities. Healthcare settings must still adhere to existing COVID-19 health protocols per CDC guidelines and NYS regulations.

    • Effective September 1, 2021, all students, faculty and staff at NYCPM/FCNY must be vaccinated against COVID-19. Students must record their vaccination record through CastleBranch; faculty and staff will record their vaccination status with the Human Resources Department.
    • NYCPM: Effective Tuesday, July 6, all fully vaccinated faculty, staff and students who have received a red ID card holder may go maskless and forgo answering the daily questionnaire. Temperatures will still be taken at the door. Those who forget their ID will have to complete an online questionnaire and present the resulting green check to the security officer at the entrance. Although vaccinations will be mandatory on September 1st, by providing proof earlier, faculty, staff and students can benefit earlier.
    • FCNY: Effective immediately:

      • Masks must still be worn in public Clinic spaces at all times, but face shields will not be required.
      • Social distancing will be recommended, not required.
      • Walk-in patients will be allowed.
      • We would prefer to maintain no more than 3 persons plus the patient in any clinic room.

    Hospitals/clinics: all faculty, residents and students must follow all current COVID-related policies at whatever affiliated hospital/clinic to which they are assigned.

    For those not vaccinated , here are the deadlines that will allow compliance with the NYCPM/FCNY September 1 vaccination mandate:

    • Wednesday July 21, 2021: Last day to have first dose of Moderna vaccine (2 doses, 4 weeks apart)
    • Wednesday, July 28, 2021: Last day to have first dose of Pfizer vaccine (2 doses, 3 weeks apart)
    • Wednesday August 18: Last day for J&J vaccination (1 dose)


    The New York College of Podiatric Medicine was happy to welcome back all students, faculty and staff on June 1st.

    Featured DPM

    Jordan DeHaven, DPM ('07)

    I have the honor to introduce to you Jordan DeHaven, DPM, alumnus of NYCPM Class of 2007. Dr. DeHaven is a native of Portage, Indiana, found on the southern tip of Lake Michigan. He attended Purdue University Northcentral Campus in Westville, Indiana, where he was initially an education major. He soon realized that that was not the right career choice for him and switched to a major in biology with a chemistry minor. Because of this switch, his graduation date changed to mid-way through the next semester, making him a perfect candidate for the January class at the New York College of Podiatric Medicine (NYCPM); he enrolled right after graduation.

    Dr. DeHaven was drawn to the field of podiatry after noting the variety of patients that can be seen on a daily basis. He knew he enjoyed working with his hands and surgery was something he was sure he wanted to do. NYCPM was the right fit for several reasons. Dr. DeHaven had always loved New York City, and the school’s location provided a chance to get out of the Midwest. The podiatry clinic located at NYCPM was a deciding factor, as well as the opportunity to start immediately in January as opposed to waiting until the following year to apply.

    Life as a podiatry student was enjoyable for Dr. DeHaven. He appreciated the learning environment, made great friends, and explored New York City. The friends he made as a student are still his great colleagues today and they discuss cases with each other almost daily. As a student, he was a member of the SNPMA and ACFAS clubs.

    Dr. DeHaven attended Roger Williams Medical Center in Providence, Rhode Island for his podiatric residency, a program that provided a lot of variety in his training. He wanted to be trained in all aspects of podiatry, from complicated rear foot to the very simple procedures. He feels that he received all of that at Roger Williams. At that time, fellowship training was still in its infancy, so he went directly into the work force. He would, however, strongly recommend a fellowship, stating that it can be hugely beneficial and that further education is always of value.

    His practice today, located in multiple locations in Rhode Island, is broad-spectrum and he feels he has the ability to treat anything and everything. He finds his work extremely rewarding and he primarily likes having the ability to alleviate a patient’s pain in one visit. When patients walks into his office with discomfort, he takes pride in having them leave without said pain and with an explanation for it. He noted he can’t see himself doing anything different and that the friendships that he’s made within podiatry have been long-lasting. He is also Residency Director for the Roger Williams Medical Center.

    On a personal note, Dr. DeHaven enjoys spending time with his wonderful wife, Tami and two great boys, Adam and Myles. They have a cat named Lilly. You can find the DeHavens vacationing in New Hampshire, where the mountains and the surrounding nature are amazing.
