After competing residencies, can one be hired in the hospital? I see most pods in private practices. Which states are easier to be hired in the hospital.

I don't know which would be easier but the answer is easy. Most of the residencies are at hospitals with podiatrist that are on staff.

After residency, pods work for multispecialty groups, ortho groups, hospitals, and private practice. I don't think any way is particularly easier.

Just like DOs and MDs, most DPMs have both a private practice and hospital privileges. How else would they be able to do surgeries? How long it takes to get privileges is going to vary from hospital to hospital. The dpm that I shadowed said that it took him a little while here in the burbs of Chicago. That may have had something to do with saturation. Immediately after his residency in Michigan, he had a practice there and had no problems getting on the hospital staff. But, here it took a bit longer. Of course that was also 20 years ago, so it's even more saturated now. Networking has got to be the key in some of these areas.

Podiatrists can definetly work in hospitals - nearly every good sized hospital will have at least a couple of them.

Private practice podiatrists also often contract with a hospital or contract/ownership in an ambulatory surgery center to use the ORs there.

songalia, not to be rude, but all of your threads in this forum seem centered around insecurity about entering podiatry due to a possible lack of respect. Being a DPM is just like anything... you earn respect. Intelligence is fake, but competence is real. Pick a career that interests you, work hard, apply yourself, and you'll do great. Having confidence in yourself and your career choice will go a long way towards that successful end point.

I didnt understood this part. So you mean you dont get priveledges just like that. Can you please mention what factors count in to get Hospital Priviledges. And why is it hard to get?

I wish I could tell you all of the factors that go into getting privileges. Maybe a 4th year or resident can fill you in on specifics. All I know is that any physician has to apply for privileges at a hospital. I saw my obstetrician go through this process when I was pregnant. He had rights at one local hospital, but it took longer to get on staff at a more sought after hospital. The hospital might not need a specific specialty at a given time. I also know of another OB/GYN who was denied privileges at two different hospitals in the area...he ended up moving out of the state after his attempts failed.

Different hospitals have different requirements which can be: (but are not limited to)

DEA number
Medicare medicaid number
board certification
diploma from pod school
passing liscensing exam - proof
amonst other things

I agree feli. Are DPM's allowed in the physician's lounge? :laugh: :laugh: Hmm...
I wonder what the D stands for in DPM.
