Podiatric Medical School is the term used to designate the institutions which educate students and train them to be podiatric physicians. Only schools which are accredited by the Council on Podiatric Medical Education (CPME) may earn the status of being a "Podiatric Medical School". The Doctor of Podiatric Medicine degree is commonly abbreviated D.P.M. degree. The D.P.M. degree is in fact a pre-requisite for an individual to be accepted into a CPME accredited surgical residency. Podiatric medical education in the United States consists of four (4) years of graduate education with the first two focusing primarily upon the sciences and the last two focusing upon didactic, clinical, and hospital externship experience. After successful completion of these four (4) years of rigorous professional education, students are granted a Doctor of Podiatric Medicine (D.P.M.) degree.
