Western Sydney University
Western Sydney University, Campbelltown Campus has a purpose built state-of-the-art teaching facility, with an on campus clinic.
Podiatrists are best known for treating problems that people commonly experience with their feet, ankles and related structures of the leg, but they are increasingly playing an important role in addressing chronic conditions such as diabetes. As a podiatrist, your patients can range from children to active sports people to the ageing. Western Sydney University offers podiatry as a four year Bachelor of Podiatric Medicine degree, which delivers career-ready graduates. For more information click here
The University has developed an innovative integrated suite of health science programs. The integration allows some options at the end of the first year for you to transfer between the various streams if you meet the criteria, with advanced standing for the units that you have completed. Note that transfer places to some streams may be very limited and competitive, and transferring may extend the duration of the degree.
Also, if you enrol in the four year Bachelor of Podiatric Medicine but decide to leave at the end of the third year, assuming you have successfully completed all of the first three years, you can be eligible to be awarded a Bachelor of Health Science if you have met all their requirements.
Approximately 1,000 hours of clinical education is provided at the University's clinical training facility and at external placement sites, including one week of placement in second year, two weeks in third year and 16 weeks in fourth year. This experience focuses on providing extensive clinical practice prior to graduation. Our year 4 students also complete a professional practice unit that explores aspects of clinical practice for a professional career, focusing on professional, technical, industrial and topical legal issues of complex cases.
