What will I learn?
The course has a strong emphasis on the clinical practices associated with podiatry and this is complemented with studies in anatomy, physiology, pathophysiology, medicine, pharmacology, surgery, biomechanics, diagnostic imaging, health promotion and the social sciences.
The course has been developed to meet the requirements of the Podiatry Board of Australia and the Australian Health Practitioner Registration Authority (AHPRA). Accreditation/recognition of the podiatry course is a legal/statutory requirement in all states and territories of Australia and graduates cannot practice Podiatry unless the course has been evaluated by the Australian and New Zealand Podiatry Accreditation Committee (ANZPAC).
