Most podiatrists work in offices of podiatry, either on their own or with other podiatrists. Some work in group practices with other physicians or specialists. Others work in private and public hospitals and outpatient care centers. Podiatrists may work closely with physicians and surgeons, registered nurses, and medical assistants.
Most podiatrists work full time. Podiatrists' offices may be open in the evenings or on weekends to accommodate patients. In hospitals, podiatrists may have to work occasional nights or weekends, or may be on call.
