Podiatry is a brilliant career if you love science, biology, chemistry or medicine.

Especially if you are:

Podiatrists specialise in the lower limb, taking the patient through the whole journey, including prevention, diagnosis and resolution.

‘A Podiatrist’s primary aim is to improve the mobility, independence and quality of life for their patients. Imagine how amazing that feels!’

They are autonomous healthcare professionals who deliver preventative, palliative, biomechanical, pharmacological and surgical interventions for lower limb problems. They work alone or are part of a multidisciplinary healthcare team.
