Becoming a student at TUSPM is making a commitment to excellence in education from your first week in orientation through your residency. TUSPM is fully integrated within a university health care system and operates its own comprehensive center for podiatric treatment, known as the Foot and Ankle Institute. Academic training begins in year one with a solid foundation in the anatomical and physiological sciences, including a lower extremity anatomy course unmatched in depth by any other podiatric medical school. Year two focuses on other biomedical sciences such as microbiology, pathology, and pharmacology. In order to support the academic mission, TUSPM sponsors a research program in both basic and clinical sciences, in which many students take an active role.
Male, female, just out of college, career changers, members of almost every cultural group - the more than
400 matriculants are a diverse and interesting group of dedicated students. Approximately 42% of TUSPM students represent racial or ethnic minorities, 49% are women, and 9% are international students.
The School of Podiatric Medicine and the College of Health Professions and Social Work, Department of Public Health, offer programs that lead to the degree of D.P.M. and Master of Public Health (M.P.H.), respectively.
