Preparing for a Career in Podiatry

Podiatric medicine is a specialty involving education and training in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of diseases and disorders of the human foot. Podiatrists share in all the rights and privileges of the practice of medicine: the authority to make independent professional judgments, to administer medical and surgical treatment, and to prescribe medication.

Today's podiatrist is free of many of the traditional tensions in practicing medicine. There's little or no emergency work. There is little or no weekend and evening work. You are free to set your own schedule. Yet, the financial rewards are excellent. A recent survey of podiatrists in Illinois showed an average income of $74,000. And the U.S. government has projected a need for approximately doubling the number of podiatrists in the next ten years. Undergraduate preparation for entrance to podiatric medicine schools is similar to that required for medical schools. Refer to Section IV.A of this Handbook.

Application to podiatric medicine schools is through the American Association of Colleges of Podiatric Medicine Application Service (AACPMAS). The AACPMAS application packet is available from:

20 Chevy Chase Circle, N.W.
Washington, DC 20015

In addition, each applicant must also take the Medical College Admission Test (MCAT) prior to admission. This test is described in Section V of this Handbook.
