    Non clinical DPM job opportunities?

    Hi everyone, I'm graduating from residency in June of this year. Even though I love podiatry, and love the clinical aspect of it, a part of me wonders what else is available to me with a DPM degree. I've been looking into some non-clinical job sites, but most everything has a MD/DO requirement...
