Podiatry Schools and Colleges

Podiatrists are required to hold a Doctor of Podiatric Medicine (DPM) degree. It typically takes 4 years following undergraduate study to obtain a DPM. Prior to being admitted to a DPM program, applicants are required to earn a bachelor’s degree and complete prerequisite courses in physics, English, chemistry, biology, and anatomy. DPM applicants are also required to take the Medical College Admission Test (MCAT). There are currently 9 colleges of podiatric medicine throughout the nation.

Podiatric medicine students have to complete similar courses as other medical students, which include disease pathology, pharmacology, anatomy, and biochemistry. During the final 2 years of podiatric medical school, students are required to complete clinical rotations to obtain clinical experience in emergency medicine, general surgery, and other fields. After obtaining a DPM, podiatrists are required to complete a 3 year residency. Some podiatrists complete additional training to specialize.
