Course summary

This double degree equips students with the skills to become both a podiatrist and a pedorthist, extending their possibilities in the design and manufacture of footwear and orthotics to treat foot and lower limb conditions.

Students 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.
