FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

A podiatrist is a doctor of podiatric medicine (DPM), a physician and surgeon who treats the foot, ankle, and related structures of the leg.

BECOMING A PODIATRIST

Podiatrists, or Doctors of Podiatric Medicine (DPMs), complete a similar course of study to other physicians. This includes four years of college study, four years in a podiatric medical school, followed by a three-year hospital-based residency.

The United States has nine accredited podiatric medical schools. Many students choose a career in podiatry because it affords the opportunity to practice medicine in a hospital system or private practice, and for the opportunity of collaboration with so many other medical disciplines in the care of the patient.
