Podiatrists

High School

High school students should explore all science classes first-such as biology, zoology, and inorganic and organic chemistry-and take as much physics and math classes as possible to determine whether they have an interest in this field. Courses in English are also recommended. The profession requires a scientific aptitude, manual dexterity, a good business sense, and an ability to put patients at ease. You will need to excel academically starting in high school to become a podiatrist.
