What is a podiatrist (DPM)?

A Doctor of Podiatric Medicine (DPM), is a medical specialist who diagnoses and treats conditions affecting the foot, ankle, and structures of the leg. The training of podiatric physicians includes human anatomy, physiology, pathophysiology, sociological and psychological perspectives, general medicine, surgery, and pharmacology; this is the same training of a Doctor of Medicine (M.D.) or Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine (D.O.) Specialist podiatric physicians are podiatrists with additional postgraduate training or fellowship training and experience in the specialized field.
