podiatrists are solo practitioners, although more are entering group
practices with other podiatrists or other health practitioners.
practitioners primarily are unincorporated self-employed workers,
although some also are incorporated wage and salary workers in offices
of other health practitioners. Other podiatrists are employed by
hospitals, long-term care facilities, the Federal Government, and
