Pre-podiatry advising is available to current ECU students through the Center for Pre-Professional Advising.
ECU students are assigned a primary advisory who will guide them through their major and course selections. When students register with the Pre-Professional Advising Center and indicate that they plan to work towards podiatry school, they will also be assigned a pre-professional advisor as a secondary resource. The pre-professional advisor will help the student determine a timeline for completing the pre-podiatry prerequisites and preparing for the podiatry school application process. As ECU does not have a podiatry program it is important that students research their options and specific requirements early.
