I'm not sure how it started either, but it seems that this is something that gets perpetuated through some of the recruiting material I have seen. When I looked into podiatry initially, I received a DVD with a short intro to podiatry video. It shows the podiatrist out golfing, and promotes the great hours and high income that podiatrists enjoy. I was sold on it, but as I have been out and seen some different podiatrists (admittedly a relatively small number), I have found that the podiatrists that I would consider very successful are the ones that put in long hours and work very hard, not the ones that spend most of their time on the golf course.
