What You Do In This Career

In this career you do the diagnosis and surgery of the foot and ankle while working with other's in a medical workplace.

Education Needed

A bachelor's degree in podiatric medicine and 90 hours of undergraduate study. Helpful high school classes are advanced math, and science classes, along with English and speech.

Cost of Tuition and Living

Tuition alone for all 4 years costs $146,600.

With other costs such as gas, groceries, clothes, and living you will spend $167,900 total.
