Podiatrist Working Conditions
Most podiatrists work in offices of podiatry, either on their own or with other podiatrists. Some work in hospitals. Others work in group practices with other physicians or specialists. Many podiatrists are self-employed; they own or are partners in their medical practice. Podiatrists also work in health maintenance organizations (HMO’s), the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, the military, and academic health science centers and universities.
Podiatrists held about 9,600 jobs in 2014.
Most podiatrists work full time. Podiatrists’ offices may be open in the evenings to accommodate patients. In hospitals, podiatrists may have to work occasional nights or weekends or may be on call.
