Podiatric physicians are doctors and surgeons who specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of conditions affecting the foot and ankle. Podiatrists can specialize in areas such as surgery, orthopedics, radiology, or sports medicine. The undergraduate course requirements are similar to those for medical school. The average GPA of admitted students is 3.2. West Virginia does not have a podiatry school.

Since there are no podiatry schools in West Virginia the Higher Education Policy Commission has established contracts with institutions to accept West Virginia students. For the most current information on which institutions, contact the Southern Regional Education Board or the West Virginia’s Higher Education Policy Commission Academic Common Market Coordinator for details.
