Contacts: Professor Lauren Yaich

Students interested in earning a Doctor of Podiatric Medicine (DPM) must complete a minimum of 90 credits (95 percent of those accepted to schools of podiatric medicine have earned a minimum of 120 credits and a baccalaureate degree) at the University of Pittsburgh at Bradford before applying to a school of podiatry. Most students attending podiatry colleges have earned a baccalaureate degree in biology prior to admittance. Each professional school may have specific requirements, in addition to the minimum courses required by all podiatry colleges, so students are advised to check with the podiatry schools of their choice prior to completing their bachelor's degree.

Please be advised


Please be advised that some programs or courses of study require that students complete rotations, fieldwork, internships/externships and/or teaching assignments at facilities external to the university, while other programs or courses of study may offer voluntary internships or externships at facilities external to the university. Depending on the program or course, such facilities will or may require a criminal background check, an act 33/34 clearance (if applicable), and perhaps a drug screen to determine participant qualification or eligibility. Additionally, in order to become licensed, many states will inquire as to whether the applicant has been convicted of a misdemeanor, a felony, or a felonious or illegal act associated with alcohol and/or substance abuse.
