Department of Podiatry


A podiatrist is a health professional who is concerned with the assessment and management of foot disorders and related lower limb disorders. Podiatrists are specialised professionals who treat and advise on foot problems in areas ranging from sports injuries and disorders in children, to the management of foot problems in older people and people with disabilities. Podiatry also involves the treatment and prevention of common foot problems like corns, callouses, ingrown nails and athlete's foot. More complex issues relating to structural and functional defects of the foot and lower limb are also treated. This can be a very lucrative, dynamic and challenging vocation for anyone who wishes to follow a medically orientated career.
