In brief: Board Certification

If you are wondering if podiatrists are board certified.
The answer is most of the time; dependent of course on whether the particular provider has actually passed those examinations and whether or not he/she chooses to be board certified. The most widely recognized boards are american board of podiatric surgery and the american board of podiatric orthopedics and primary podiatric medicine.

There is a national body, but I do not think we are considered physicians. Podiatric physicians at this point in time.
