    Hello all,
    I have recently become aware of the field of podiatry as another medical school option and I am getting more and more interested in seriously pursuing this career! The options in this field seem great. I was just wondering if podiatrists can find jobs being employed in hospitals or if podiatrists are generally employed in their own private practices (or in group practices). What do you think, thanks so much!!!

    Depends on the area, larger areas will staff Podiatrist in hospitals. And then again there are smaller areas that do as well. Most Podiatrists have hospital rights, so they can perform surgery at the hospital. Otherwise there are a lot of partnerships/group practices, along with individual. So I didn't really answer your questions, essentially there are opportunities for everything out there you just have to find them.
