Working in the States

    Hello,

    I am training to become a Podiatrist in New Zealand which is quite different to what is understood as a podiatrist in the United States. I have dual nationality and I would like to work as a Podiatrist or
    more specifically use my podiatry clinical skills in the united states at some stage in my career. I do not want to be a doctor or surgeon but are their roles for a Podiatry assistant carrying out the role or scope of practice of a Podiatrist as it understood in other parts of the world in parts of the states. From looking online it seems the Podiatrist role is understood very differently to the role of podiatrist in other parts of the world. Where it is genuinely a three-four year degree with a similar scope of practice rather than a branch of medicine.

    VERY limited opportunities, in my experience. The American Podiatrist will often employ MA's (Medical Assistants) but you will not be able to practice 'Podiatry' unless you are certified as per State requirements.
