The future ahead for Podiatry.’ We have some excellent speakers lined up for a clinically relevant and practically valuable scientific program which will also give you hands on practical experience for you to integrate into your working environment.

The Podiatrist's Scope of Practice includes paediatrics, diabetes, sports injuries, structural problems (biomechanics), treatment of the elderly and general foot care. The complex mechanics of feet (52 bones, a network of muscles, joints and ligaments) and a wide range of foot problems (over 200 identified conditions) demand professional expertise.
