Podiatrist

U.S. Air Force

Position Summary

A career in the Air Force isn’t your average desk job. In fact, our nation’s Airmen perform most of their daily tasks standing up, so when foot problems occur, it’s your responsibility as an Air Force Podiatrist to get them back up on their feet. Do what you do now: diagnose and treat a wide range of foot ailments ranging from injuries to physical abnormalities. But in the Air Force, you will provide medical attention to Airmen’s foot problems without the red tape and the headache of a traditional civilian practice. Key areas of focus include performing surgery, interpreting X-rays, conducting research, prescribing therapeutic devices and supervising special health programs.

Benefits

The Air Force benefits package is unparalleled in the civilian world. Benefits include:

  • 30 days of vacation with pay each year
  • Outstanding healthcare coverage for you and your family

  • Free or low-cost world travel opportunities
