    I went on a cruise trip to bahamas for the new year. Before leaving i went to the US embassy website to get the list of emergency medical numbers,etc. and i found out that there are Podiatrists in bahamas.

    http://nassau.usembassy.gov/list_of_doctors.html (see in the Podiatry/Foot&ankle section)

    Just in case, if any of us wanna practice in the carribean. im sure there will be a good number of patients with ankle sprains,trauma,etc because of the water sports :)

    Not sure if that's somewhat close to what we have here in the states.

    Taken from The Health Professions Council Website

    One of the guys that I looked up there has a DPM so it must not be that bad.

    I am a Bahamian student studying Podiatry and the scope of practice is on par with the US. Glad to see yall are interested...don't expect all "water sports" injuries though ;-)

    I don't know how you hurt your foot practicing "water sports"...R Kelly's feet seem fine. Too inappropriate for this forum?
