Podiatry: The Career That Found Me
By Jaclyn Reed, Resident at Penn Presbyterian Medical Center (PGY-2)
Residency Director, Michael Troiano, DPM, PPMA Board Consultant
A lot of students seeking a career in medicine either don’t know about podiatry as an option, or do not know the many aspects a career in podiatric medicine and surgery has to offer. The ability to improve patients’ quality of life and to see the gratitude that her patients expressed also strongly impacted my decision to choose podiatry as my career. I knew that I would have the ability to help patients in the same capacity, while establishing a rapport with my patients.
