Representative coursework in the sciences in conjunction with Mercyhurst's hallmark liberal arts education prepares students for entrance into Podiatry School. Doctors of podiatric medicine are licensed and specialized in diagnosing and treating conditions associated with the foot and ankle. Podiatrists prescribe medication and physical therapy, set fractures, and perform surgery to improve their patients' health.
Most students at Mercyhurst College meet requirements for entry into Podiatry School as a Biology major, but majors in Sports Medicine or other disciplines can also fulfill requirements in consultation with the Pre-Health Advisor.
The Mercyhurst Advantage
Each year our seminar series brings in speakers from Podiatry Schools to give our students one-on-one interactions, helping them learn more about the profession and the path towards becoming a Podiatrist.
