What is podiatry?
Podiatry is the specific branch of medicine that deals with diagnosis and treatment of conditions of the foot and ankle.
A Podiatrist, Doctor of Podiatric Medicine (DPM), is the only health care professional whose total training focuses on the foot, ankle and related body systems.
After obtaining an undergraduate degree, the podiatric doctor spends four years in a college of podiatric medicine to obtain a doctorate degree. Many podiatrists further their education by participating in a post-graduate residency program at an approved hospital or university.
Following their doctorate degree, each podiatrist must pass national and state examinations in order to be licensed by the state in which he or she will practice
