Subject

Podiatry

Important Notice - This course will relocate. Applicants and current students will be updated in due course.

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'. This course will be 'refreshed' during the 2017/18 academic year, with changes put in place for students entering in September 2018. For the most up-to-date course/module information, please contact the course director.
