Hello all- I absolutey love the podiatry profession and absoultely plan on venturing into the application process next fall. Before I 100% make this my final decision I was curious as to the following: What can I expect my starting salary to be in the neighborhood of right after schooling? What can I expect it to reach its peak at if one day I have a private practice in NYC? Is it true that podiatrists on average earn a higher income than some MDs that do not specialize like internists and pediatricians? Do you think respect for the profession in society is honestly increasing or dwindling? While I know people should go into work for love of the profession, I do have to consider a potential family life and making a big enough salary to support my family and my future endeavors.
