Podiatry Clinic

Podiatry is the assessment, diagnosis and treatment of foot and lower limb disorders, many of which are caused by general health disorders. You will use comprehensive assessment and diagnostic skills to develop patient care pathways for conditions which impact on people's quality of life.

Qualified podiatrists find employment in hospitals, GP clinics, in the community, or can set up in private practice. They can work alongside doctors, nurses, physiotherapists and other professionals and are seen as a vital part of the healthcare team.

The University has an on-site Podiatry Clinic and is a lead partner in the UK's first Centre for Doctoral Training in Prosthetics and Orthotics. As a student, you will benefit from state-of-the-art facilities, placement opportunities and teaching staff who are experts in their fields.
