As you train to become a podiatrist you'll attend 1,000 hours in placement settings, ranging from the community and acute care to the private and commercial sectors. You'll benefit from the experience of treating real patients under close supervision, and with individual feedback.
Along with learning to diagnose and treat foot and lower limb disorders, you'll be taught about medication and local anaesthesia. You'll also learn to apply research to your clinical practice and undertake a research project in collaboration with research-active supervisors.
All health science courses have a patient-centred approach. Your training will include ethics and an exploration of how social issues and mental health can influence physical wellbeing.
This Podiatry BSc course offered by the University of Southampton has a strong focus on employability and leadership. You’ll learn how to influence and effect change and develop your innovation and business skills. You'll be eligible to apply for registration as a podiatrist when you graduate.
- Once in practice, your work will be challenging yet rewarding. You'll see a wide variety of patients, from children with problems walking, to people with diabetes, vascular and neurological disorders. As you progress in your career, you'll be able to choose to specialise in an area that interests you, such as sports podiatry, dermatology, paediatrics or forensic podiatry.
- You can also work in multi-disciplinary teams in settings ranging from hospitals and community clinics, to sports clinics and the homes of patients. You could even undertake further training to qualify as a lecturer or podiatric surgeon.
- Your qualification also allows you to travel and practice abroad. This degree is recognised in Australia, New Zealand, Singapore and some provinces in Canada.
