Podiatrists study the structure and function of the whole body and specialise in the foot, ankle and lower limb. On graduating, you’ll be a qualified healthcare professional making your own clinical decisions. You’ll be ready to work alone or as part of a multi-disciplinary team to deliver preventative care, diagnosis and treatment of a wide range of problems affecting the lower limb. You’ll be taught about anatomy, physiology and pathology, and how the body reacts to illness and injury –with a special focus on feet and lower limb problems. One of the distinctive features of this course is the vast amount of practical experience it gives you. Under supervision, you’ll start seeing patients after Christmas of your first year in our on-site Clinical Education Centre. You’ll also undertake clinical placements within National Health Service clinics across London and the east of England.
