Yes. Podiatrists study medicine as it applies to the feet and ankles.

After graduating with a 4-year degree, podiatrists attend 4 years of podiatric medical school which requires taking the MCAT like other medical schools. Like MDs, podiatric medical school is followed by years of residency training for hands-on experience.
