Podiatrists take care of people’s feet, ankles and lower legs. Just like other kinds of doctors, they can work in hospitals and clinics. Or they can have their own private practice. If you think you’d like to be a podiatrist, you’ll need to earn a doctor of podiatric medicine degree.
But first, you’ll need to complete at least 90 credits on our campus before you can apply to a school of podiatry. However, keep in mind that 95 percent of students accepted to podiatry schools had bachelor’s degree. Most of them had a bachelor’s degree in biology.
Each podiatry school may have specific requirements besides the minimum courses required by all of them. So, we advise you to check with the podiatry schools of your choice before completing your bachelor’s degree.
