New study options in allied health for 2013
Podiatry and speech pathology
In our new Bachelor of Health Science, students can select to major in either podiatry or speech pathology. The course develops an understanding of the theoretical and practical components of these disciplines, and prepares students for professional practice as podiatrists or speech pathologists. The course will be taught by dedicated professionals, both academic and clinical, who have a wide range of work experience. The University is seeking accreditation for the course from the Australian and New Zealand Podiatry Accreditation Council (ANZPAC) and from Speech Pathology Australia.
Our Bachelor of Clinical Sciences offers a selection of majors for students to choose from including a new pedorthics major. This major is designed for those wishing to become a pedorthist - a health care professional who specialises in the improvement of human movement in particular gait and better foot function. A pedorthist conducts a comprehensive assessment which may lead to them manufacturing corrective footwear, orthoses or other supportive devices to address conditions which affect the feet and human mobility.
