Overview

Podiatrists: the medical experts for your complete foot care/surgical needs. To be a candidate for a podiatry program a student must complete at least 90 hours of education at the undergraduate level. The student then applies to a Doctor of Podiatric Medicine (DPM) degree at a professional college of podiatry. Admission is very competitive and each podiatry program has slightly different criteria. It is important to review the pre-requisites for each school and identify which program you wish to apply and plan accordingly. On average students should maintain a grade point average near 3.40/4.00 or higher, demonstrate leadership skills, expose yourself to the world of podiatry, and perform well on the Medical Admission Test (MCAT).
