Are podiatrists physicians?

1 Answer(s)

No, physicians practice medicine so they are responsible for the medical problems involving the entire body. They can specialize after medical school and internship have trained them  for general practice.


Podiatrists provide medical and surgical footcare, are similarly trained-some share faculty with medical schools but state laws and hospitals delegate medical care to physicians or MD’s and DO’s.


Hope this helps!
