A podiatrist or doctor of podiatry is the only health professional
who’s entire training is focused on the foot and ankle.
The podiatrist receives extensive
training in the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of disorders
of the foot and ankle. This may include medical or surgical
methods. Many podiatrists further their training through participation
in a postgraduate hospital based residency program.
After completion of their doctorate degree,
a podiatrist must pass national and state examinations in order
to be licensed in the state in which they practice.
Many podiatrists choose to become board certified. After successful
completion of extensive oral and written examinations a podiatrist
is granted certification by one or two nationally recognized
boards, the American Board of Podiatric Surgery and the American
Board of Podiatric Orthopedics and Primary Podiatric Medicine.
