Podiatrists provide medical and surgical care for people with problems in the lower extremities. They diagnose illnesses, treat injuries and perform surgery. Some podiatrists spend most of their time performing surgery, such as foot and ankle reconstruction, while others may specialize in sports medicine, pediatrics, or diabetic foot care.

Pre-podiatry students apply to programs through the American Association of Colleges of Podiatric Medicine Application Services (AACPMAS). A competitive application includes recommendation letters from faculty members and a podiatrist. 

There is one college of podiatric medicine in Florida - at Barry University, located in Miami Shores.
