What is an average workday like for a podiatrist job?

While the workday for a podiatrist job may vary, in general, the average day is similar to that of many other physicians and medical specialists. Podiatrists most often work in a clinical setting, in a private office or as part of a hospital or medical complex. Patients are seen in a clinical office and are physically examined using common podiatrist practices, generally while sitting on a special podiatry chair that includes a leg and foot support. Once examined, patients are prescribed the necessary treatment. The podiatrist follows up to ensure that each patient is treated correctly. Podiatrists generally see up to twenty patients in an 8-hour work day, with follow-up time to review patient charts, reports and records.
