Are podiatrists doctors?
Podiatrists are doctors with a specialized degree focused on the feet and ankles.
Podiatrists are doctors of podiatric medicine (DPM), also called foot doctors, podiatric physicians, podiatric surgeons, or foot and ankle specialists.
Are podiatrists MDs?
A medical doctor (MD) studies and trains in treating all parts of the human body, and is qualified to diagnose and treat a wide range of conditions.
A podiatrist (DPM) is a specialist in the field of medicine, board certified and qualified to diagnose and treat conditions affecting the feet, ankles, toes, heels and related areas in the lower extremities.
Do podiatrists go to medical school?
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.
