Here is my best explanation:

'feet' is the definition.
(iamb is a kind of foot)

'a bachelor of medicine getting one on one's' is the wordplay.
'bachelor of medicine' becomes 'mb' ('MB' can be a synonym of 'bachelor of medicine').
'getting' means one lot of letters go next to another.
'one' becomes 'i' (Roman numeral).
'on' means one lot of letters go next to another.
'one' becomes 'i' (Roman numeral).
'a' put next to 'mb' is 'amb'.
'amb' after 'i' is 'iamb'.
'iamb'+'i'='IAMBI'
