Achieving Podiatric fame is going to be a challenge. As an intern, you may choose to specialize in sports medicine, in which case you could see some pretty famous feet come through the door, and could try to take credit for touchdowns and record-breaking sprints by screaming loudly at the television, "I did that!"  However, outside of pro wrestling, screaming at seemingly random times tends to reduce fame, or at least people's desire to be near you.

There exists a chance you could also gain vicarious fame by treating a movie star or music icon, but they tend to self-medicate. The reality is that podiatry, while a noble and lucrative calling, is more likely to place you in history's footnotes.
