Course summary

The feet contain almost a quarter of all the bones in our bodies - it’s essential to take care of them. Our Bachelor of Podiatry will enable you to exert a positive, healing effect on people with conditions of the foot and lower leg including surgery, sports medicine, biomechanics, geriatrics, paediatrics and primary care.

In our state-of-the-art facilities at Southern Cross University’s Gold Coast campus, you will gather the expertise to offer sound diagnosis and treatment.

You'll also benefit from professional placements enabling you to work with children, adults, athletes and the elderly, examining issues around sporting injuries, gait, biomechanics and acute conditions.

Graduates can pursue a career with a high degree of autonomy, working in hospital settings or in group or individual practice.
