Enhance your career opportunities considerably with this accelerated double degree.

The Bachelor of Podiatry, Bachelor of Pedorthics equips you with the skills to become both a podiatrist and a pedorthist, extending your possibilities in the design and manufacture of footwear and orthotics to treat foot and lower limb conditions.

You will complete subjects from both disciplines that will encourage the development of a broad and coherent theoretical and technical knowledge. These include extensive studies in anatomy with a focus on lower limbs and feet, psychology, orthoses, biomechanics, pharmacology, risk, clinical accountability and clinical reasoning. High-tech laboratories and manufacturing facilities on campus provide contemporary learning environments, complemented by significant blocks of workplace experience.

Graduates have an array of career opportunities in both fields and in careers that combine both disciplines.

Major areas of study

The Bachelor of Podiatry enables students to develop an understanding of the theoretical and practical components of podiatry, with a focus on both general and specialist knowledge and skills. This includes broad subject areas including anatomy, patho-physiology, pharmacology, psychology and communication. As students move through the course, they study more specialised content including biomechanics, rehabilitation, dermatology, rheumatology and paediatrics.

In the Bachelor of Pedorthics, students are introduced to foot care as a requirement for living independently and being mobile. Studies include learning about health problems associated with feet and footwear design and production.

Clinical skills are gained through a gradual process of preclinical stimulation, internal University clinics and external clinical practice placements.

Career opportunities

This double degree is ideal for careers in both disciplines, and particularly for podiatrists who can extend their practice into the manufacture of medical-grade footwear and other orthotic devices, such as ankle foot orthoses.
