Podiatrist Work Conditions

Most podiatrists work in offices of podiatry, either on their own or with other podiatrists. Some work in hospitals. Others work in group practices with other physicians or specialists. Many podiatrists are self-employed; they own or are partners in their medical practice. Podiatrists also work in health maintenance organizations (HMO’s), the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, the military, and academic health science centers and universities.

As shown in the following tabulation, 51 percent of podiatrists were employed in the office of other health practitioners, including podiatry offices, in 2010.

Offices of other health practitioners 51%
Self-employed workers 26%
Offices of physicians 10%
Federal government, excluding postal service 6%
General medical and surgical hospitals; private 4%

Most podiatrists work full time. Podiatrists’ offices may be open in the evenings to accommodate patients. In hospitals, podiatrists may have to work occasional nights or weekends or may be on call.
