In this program, students will study on how to diagnose and treat disorders of the foot and lower limb. They will gain an advanced understanding of both the theoretical and practical aspects of podiatry, as well as the physical, chemical and social sciences relevant to working in healthcare. There is a major focus on practical skills where students will get the opportunity to practice these skills in the on-campus Podiatry Clinic. Students who undertake activities where interaction with patients/the public is required for their degree, such as field or clinical placements/visits and in University clinics and gyms, must demonstrate they meet mandatory pre-placement conditional requirements. These include criminal history clearance, child related employment clearance and immunisation requirements. All students enrolled in a program leading to professional registration must be registered with the relevant National Board. The registration process is undertaken by the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA) with the University providing notification to AHPRA following enrolment in the program.
