    we take the National Boards of Podiatric exams. They are similar to the USMLE in the sense of basic science material (first 2 years of medical schools) but have an added emphasis and component of lower antomy.

    Yea, and I took part II a few weeks ago and am eagerly awaiting the results. Part II covers things similar to USMLE part II with the exception of podiatric medicine and surgery.
