Due to COVID-19, some podiatry offices may not be open and social distancing is still in place. Students will likely be unable to shadow doctors in their offices at this time. However we strongly encourage students to reach out to potential mentors via email to schedule virtual meetings such as phone appointments, Zoom meetings, FaceTime calls, or through some other virtual platform.
Please do not show up at an office unannounced so your mentor can plan for your virtual meeting.
Additionally, be sure to take advantage of our interactive Step into Podiatry webinars, featuring Q&A with current podiatric medical students, admissions representatives from the podiatric medical colleges, podiatric residents, and more. Webinar recordings and registration for upcoming presentations are available on the Step into Podiatry Resource page.
