Credit points: 15

Subject outline

In this subject students will further develop the pathophysiology subject, studied in the previous year, by looking at the general medical conditions that affect the foot. The subject covers rheumatology, neurology, cardiology, endocrine, renal, respiratory, oncology and general dermatology conditions that have effects in the foot and can affect the podiatric management of these people. Those medical conditions that are more common in podiatric practice and put the foot at high risk for complications (eg. diabetes and peripheral vascular disease) are excluded from this subject and are included in POD5HRF.
