    Hello all and thank you for this wonderful arena to discuss all the aspects of podiatry.I am a podiatric nurse at a rural health care/MediCal clinic that does a brisk business.The work is fascinating and I am fortunate to be working for a podiatric surgeon that was Navy trained.I learn much more on a daily basis than I had ever hoped possible.I wish you all happy feet!

    Hi from another new viewer

    I think it would be good for all of us to do some work experience in a large practice as a sole chiropodist it can be quite lonely and I agree you learn so much more by working with others than just by yourself.
