Where Can I Find Online Podiatry Education?

Online podiatry education for new students is limited, typically being geared towards working podiatrists. If you're a professional podiatrist, several associations and podiatry colleges offer online courses and seminars. New students who are seeking podiatric medicine degrees may be able to find a few podiatry colleges that offer the required education and training. Schools offering Allied Health degrees can also be found in these popular choices.

About Online Podiatry Education

Due to the extensive hands-on training required to obtain a Doctor of Podiatric Medicine degree, online education is fairly uncommon. Currently, nine accredited podiatric colleges exist within the United States. Online podiatry education opportunities are often in the form of continuing education courses. These are intended for licensed professional podiatrists who need or want training in new methods. Most continuing education programs consist of on-site seminars or classes that may be taken through accredited podiatric colleges or associations, such as the American Podiatric Medical Association. The following school offers such a program.
