What is a Podiatrist
Training of a Podiatrist A Podiatrist practices the medical, and biomechanical treatment of the human foot, ankle, and associated structures. Although our focus is mainly on the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of problems affecting the foot and ankle, Podiatrists are also highly trained health care providers. We see people of all ages and are often the first health providers to diagnose systemic problems that affect the feet and ankles such as diabetes, gout, hypertension, immunodeficiencies, and arthritis. Four years of University is typically followed by a new graduate receiving 2 or 3 years of mentoring under a Senior Podiatrist.
