PODIATRIC PRACTICE B
Credit points: 15
Podiatrists are required to use clinical skills to manage a variety of foot and ankle conditions. In this subject, students will extend their clinical knowledge and skills to introduce them to the management of patients with foot and ankle conditions requiring introductory podiatric care. This subject will prepare students for the clinical subjects that are delivered later in the course. In addition, students will describe knowledge related to the prescription of foot orthoses. Specifically, students will be introduced to the use of foot orthoses to manage foot and ankle conditions and consolidate knowledge in regards to the management of common dermatological conditions. The concepts will be introduced in workshops and consolidated by managing patients in the Health Sciences Clinic. Professional accreditation requires a minimum level of clinical exposure. Students' attendance at professional placements will contribute to meeting this requirement for professional recognition as a podiatrist.
