A podiatrist, also called a doctor of podiatric medicine, is a specialist who provides medical diagnosis and treatment of foot and ankle problems. In addition to undergraduate medical school training, podiatrists also attend professional medical school for a doctorate degree in podiatry.
Subsequently, podiatrists undergo a residency program for surgical and practical training. Podiatrists are required to take state and national exams, as well as be licensed by the state in which they practice.
