Podiatrists are uniquely trained to treat all foot and ankle disorders. Preparatory education for most Doctors of Podiatric Medicine (DPMs) consists of 4 years of pre-med undergraduate studies, followed by 4 years of coursework in an accredited podiatric medical school. After this, graduates attend a 2 or 3 year hospital-based residency. They then must sit for a state licensing exam. Podiatrists are well-versed in sports medicine, biomechanics, radiology, dermatology, and surgery relating to the foot and ankle.
