About the College

The fact that approximately one-third of all practicing podiatric physicians in the United States are alumni of Scholl College stands as a testament to how we do just that. Scholl College has a great reputation, thanks to a well-rounded medical curriculum, a passion for interprofessional medical care and an enthusiasm for applying new technologies.

Our students learn alongside students from other programs, with an interprofessional focus that encourages team-based learning. The Scholl College curriculum mirrors the curriculum from Chicago Medical School, with introduction to clinical sciences in the first year. Our students begin making a difference in the lives of patients long before they graduate, through rotations at world-class hospitals and clinics in the areas of ER, infectious diseases, internal medicine and surgery.

In addition, Scholl College is home to the Scholl Foot & Ankle Center, which provides medical care to our community and is home to several federally funded research studies.

We enroll students whose applications show they are prepared to study podiatric medicine. Our students have achieved academic success and demonstrate personal growth and professional motivation.

Dr. William M. Scholl College of Podiatric Medicine became a member of the RFU family in 2001. Recognized as a world leader in advancing podiatric medical education, the college provides a fully accredited, four-year professional program leading to the Doctor of Podiatric Medicine (DPM) degree. One third of all practicing podiatrists in the U.S. are graduates of our program. Scholl truly is the college to go to when it comes to podiatry.
