Podiatry
Model of the bones and muscles in a foot

 

Podiatry advisement is for students that are interested in becoming Doctors of Podiatric Medicine (DPM). Podiatrists diagnose illness and treat injury associated with the foot and lower extremity. Like a medical physician, they prescribe and administer treatment and advise patients how to prevent and manage disease associated with the feet. We help students determine if becoming a podiatrist is right for them.

We assist students in planning necessary classes and preparing for the Medical College Admissions Test (MCAT). Additionally, we counsel students about specifics such as shadowing a podiatric physician, having patient exposure opportunities, obtaining letters of recommendation, performing community service, and being involved in any other extracurricular activities that will improve students’ chances of gaining admission to podiatric medical school.

We are available to all students regardless of major. We strongly advise students to come in and meet with our advisors to help guide you through your undergraduate experience. Please click below to see the available handouts.
