Podiatry is the treatment of any and all disorders of the foot and ankle. A podiatrist is a doctor of podiatric medicine who is trained in orthopedic and dermatological surgery as well as conservative and invasive medicine of the foot and ankle. There is no higher trained physician than a podiatrist when it comes to the foot and ankle. A podiatrist must first obtain an undergraduate bachelor of science degree form a four year university, usually in biology. After undergraduate college, a four year medical degree from a school of podiatric medicine is earned in order to become a DPM. After earning the docotor of podiatric medicine (DPM) degree, a one to four year residency must be completed. Following this, state boards and a state license must be obtained followed by continuing medical education through the practice life of the physician.
