College of Podiatric Medicine

The field of podiatry has changed dramatically. Podiatric medicine is exciting and benefits people in ways you’ve never imagined. A podiatric physician can help prevent amputations while saving limbs and lives. By the time you graduate, you will be able to apply the cutting edge technology of living cell and gene therapy to the field of diabetic wound healing. Imagine how you’ll feel seeing someone walk again because of you. Or just as exciting, working with athletes to maintain their full potential by treating and preventing sports injuries. Podiatric medicine opens doors to research and participation in clinical trials for novel treatments and technologies. Whether you open up your own practice after graduation, participate in research, government consulting or join the pharmaceutical field, podiatric medicine is a diverse and financially rewarding medical career choice.
