PRACTICE THE MEDICINE
Humans are meant to move with grace, agility, and lack of pain. As a Doctor of Podiatric Medicine, you’ll help people do exactly that. You’ll have the opportunity to apply your passion for medicine and your compassion for others. And you’ll have the opportunity to diagnose, treat patients, and focus on a holistic view of patient care.
As part of this evolving profession, students have the opportunity to choose a specialty such as surgery, trauma, diabetic limb salvage, biomechanics and sports medicine, dermatology, forensics, and many more.
