Course summary

Podiatry is a science-based healthcare profession that places emphasis on the promotion, maintenance and restoration of foot and lower limb health. The responsibilities of the professional podiatrist are to detect and diagnose problems concerning the feet, and to implement an effective management strategy. Students are trained to appreciate all aspects of health and disease and to work alongside other healthcare professionals to provide the most appropriate care for their patients. Extensive practical experience equips graduates with the knowledge and skills essential for clinical practice. Podiatry is a profession of subspecialties including sports medicine, paediatrics, rheumatology, musculo-skeletal, diabetes, general practice, dermatology, medico-legal and podiatric surgery. All of these areas offer potential avenues for employment and extended scope of practice. This degree programme provides the broad base of training for entry level into any of these subspecialties. The University regularly 'refreshes' courses to make sure they are as up-to-date as possible. The University calls this process 'academic revalidation'.
