The UNT Office of Health Professions provides direction and resources to students passionate for a career in podiatry. As a pre-podiatry student, you may select any major, as long as you complete the prerequisite coursework required by each podiatry school. Please see the following pre-health advisor to further explore a major that best fits your academic strengths and future career goals:
The journey through podiatry school can be rigorous, and it’s imperative that you prove to the schools’ admission boards that you are capable of success in their programs. In addition to grades and entrance exam scores, podiatry schools will evaluate both your volunteer and shadowing experience*. All areas are equally important in a holistic assessment of the candidate.
*Volunteering: Podiatry schools are looking for students who have volunteered in their community. Though not required, it's best if you volunteer in the medical field, where you are helping people.
*Shadowing: To be considered a competitive candidate, students need to shadow a professional in their field of interest. Several hours of shadowing will display an understanding and commitment to such profession.
