Podiatry is the branch of medicine specializing in the care and treatment of the human foot and ankle in health and disease. Doctors of Podiatric Medicine (DPM) are physicians and surgeons who practice on the lower extremities, primarily on feet and ankles. The preparatory education for most DPMs includes four years of undergraduate work, followed by four years in an accredited podiatric medical school and then a three-year residency program.
