Navy Podiatrists treat the feet, ankle and the lower extremity issues of service members, their families, and those in need. Besides normal issues, they also treat bunion deformities, torn ligaments, and stress fractures.

They have the ability to partner with first-rate health-care providers, such as orthopedic surgeons and physical therapists, and have the opportunity to use direct-access skills and practice as a critical part of a distinguished, professional medical team.

Off ramp opportunities: Congressional Liaison, OIC, and XO at NROTC unit.

Navy podiatrists attend to service members and their families in much the same way a civilian podiatrist would. They work at top military medical facilities with access to progressive and advanced training and technology.

Navy podiatrists also:
  • Earn excellent compensation in an established, thriving practice.
  • Experience manageable patient ratios for high-quality, one-on-one care.
  • Receive hands-on experience and Navy-funded advanced training.
  • Enjoy a flexible schedule that leaves more time for family and personal pursuits.
