Dr. Marvin D. Steinberg
Dr. Marvin D. Steinberg is one of the pioneers and leaders in the field of podiatric medicine. Throughout his distinguished career Dr. Steinberg’s influence and involvement in both podiatric practice and podiatric education earned him the name “Father of Modern Podiatric Medicine.”
Dr. Steinberg established, and directed the first hospital-based residency training program in a Joint Commission accredited hospital in 1965. Dr. Steinberg practiced for over fifty years, first in New York and later in Florida. During this time he pioneered many of the treatments, medicines, and instruments that are still in use today by podiatrists the world over. When he retired to South Florida, he became actively involved on the academic and clinical programs at Barry University during the School of Podiatric Medicine’s formative years.
In 1996, the Dr. Marvin D. Steinberg Alumni Scholarship was established by his family to honor Marvin D. Steinberg, DPM, pioneer educator and practitioner in podiatric medicine.
In 2012, the Steinberg family established the Dr. Marvin D. and Ruth M. Steinberg Scholarship for Research in Limb Preservation to honor Dr. Marvin D. and his wife Ruth. Ruth died in 2002. The scholarship will provide one annual research scholarship to a qualified podiatric medical student at Barry University.
