From a Special Forces Medic to a Podiatrist
A Practice Profile: Charles C. Southerland, DPM
While serving in the U.S. Army during the Vietnam War era, Dr. Charles Southerland was a Special Forces Medic, a role that helped him develop a deep appreciation for the practice of medicine.

Dr. Southerland's road to podiatry did not begin until he was on a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, where he met a team of podiatrists who were caring for migrant farmers in the San Joaquin Valley in California.
Dr. Southerland -- In his own words: Why Not Med School?
While an undergrad at Brigham Young University, Dr. Charles C. Southerland applied to podiatry and medical school. After being accepted to both, Dr. Southerland chose podiatry, a decision that he says has led to "lifelong contentment."
