A podiatrist in New Haven is a Doctor of Podiatric Medicine (DPM). Podiatrists are physicians and surgeons who treat the foot, ankle, and related structures of the leg. This niche profession can be crucial especially in sports sciences.
It Could Get Taken Away
Podiatrists in New Haven complete four years of training in a podiatry medical school and three years of hospital residency training. Podiatrists can complete fellowship training following their residency. You may choose to focus on many fields including surgery, sports medicine, wound care, pediatrics, and diabetic care. Podiatrists can earn board certification with advanced training, clinical experience, and by taking the American Board of Foot and Ankle Surgery Exam and American Board of Podiatric Medicine Exam. Obtaining a license is only half the battle, however, as there are situations where a license may be revoked or suspended. A few common license issues include:
Unprofessional conduct, especially sexual misconduct, which could lead to loss or suspension.
Allowing unlicensed assistants to work under you could result in an investigation or loss of license.
Negligence, or gross negligence such as failing to meet the medical standards set forth for podiatrists, could lead to loss or suspension of license.
