As a graduate of the Podiatry (Hons) from University of Wolverhampton, you will have the ability to work both within the National Health Service and as an independent practitioner; which enables you to either join a team within a private practice (if successful at interview) or set up your own private practice. You must be able to work as a team and make complex clinical judgements with a good understanding of working within a health care team.
Podiatry graduates will be eligible to apply for membership of the professional body, known the Society of Chiropodists and Podiatrists. You will also be eligible to apply to join the register regulated by the Health & Care Professions Council (HCPC).
Only through being a registrant within this regulatory framework, will you be allowed to use the protected titles ‘Chiropodist’/’Podiatrist, which opens doors to employment within both the NHS and private sectors as a Chiropodist/Podiatrist.
As an HCPC registrant you will be required to maintain your skills by demonstrating regular Continuous Professional Development (CPD).
