By gaining preliminary knowledge in your undergraduate years, you’ll be better suited for the rigors of podiatry school. Take classes that both interest and engage you while getting a head start on your career. You'll work with an advisor from the UND College of Arts & Sciences to develop a plan of study that will prepare you for podiatry school. Some required prerequisite classes for podiatry school are:
- Organic Chemistry
- English Composition
- College Algebra
- Cell Biology
- Public Speaking
Gain experience in the field while learning the ropes with an internship or other experiential learning opportunity while you’re at UND. Podiatry schools require that you gain experience and exposure to the profession by shadowing, volunteering or working in a podiatry office or health care environment. Many pre-podiatry students at UND are active members of the Undergraduate Medical Association (UMA). This student organization helps you explore the world of physicians and helps members determine if they want careers in medicine.
Choose from a career in a hospital, clinic or your very own private practice. Podiatry has a high projected growth rate, making it a desirable career choice.
