This innovative course will provide podiatrists with a theoretical underpinning of podiatric surgery and the opportunity to specialise in surgery.

Podiatric surgery has developed rapidly over the last 15 years as a post-registration professional development, and provides the podiatrist working within the NHS or in private practice with the opportunity to extend their scope of practice to include surgical management of foot and ankle pathologies. This course provides the podiatrist with the theoretical underpinning required to pursue this career route. The modular course is a collaborative initiative offered in partnership with Glasgow Caledonian University.

Teaching, learning and assessment

A range of student-centred learning methods including tutorials, seminars and experimental laboratory classes are utilised. Your performance will be assessed by a variety of methods including course work and examination. Class sizes are normally around 10-15.

Teaching hours and attendance

This course is delivered by attendance and by online learning. You will generally be required to attend QMU/ Glasgow Caledonian University a few days a week to participate in classes. You will also be required to carry out additional self directed independent work. Your exact attendance (days and hours) at QMU/GCU will depend on which module you are studying. The part-time route allows you to space your studies out over a longer period of time to suit your needs.

Links with industry/professional bodies

The course is approved by the Royal College of Surgeons and Physicians, Glasgow, The Royal College of Surgeons, Edinburgh, and the Society of Chiropodists and Podiatrists (SOCAP). On completion of the MSc you will be eligible to apply for a surgical training post. Surgical training posts are not part of the academic programme of study and are not arranged by either university.

This modular programme aims to provide an academic underpinning in preparation for podiatric surgery and/or advanced practice and conceptualises the podiatrist as a critical, problem solving, reflective clinical practitioner who is able to act autonomously in planning and implementing professional tasks.

The programme utilises a wide variety of contemporary learning and teaching approaches which challenges the students to work independently as well as fostering an appreciation of the value of a team approach to care. These key generic skills are developed and utilised to promote the highest quality of practice and enable the students to use the best available evidence as well as widening their scope of practice.

The programme aims to produce a practitioner who is able to gather systematically, appraise, make sound judgements in the absence of complete data, utilise the best available evidence for practice and disseminate this information to other colleagues and the broader healthcare community.

Professional Accreditation

This programme is approved by the College of Podiatry, London.

CPD Option

Individual modules are available to health and social care professions with an interest in the area. Most modules are available via Online study.

Employment Opportunities

Successful completion of the Postgraduate Diploma (PgD) confers eligibility to apply for practical pupillage under the mentorship of a podiatric surgeon. Also a role as an extended scope practitioner in an MSK practice setting.

Many of our graduates have found that this academic qualification and the graduate skills acquired during the programme have enhanced their employability and career progression in surgery and MSK practice within the UK and abroad.

This course currently offers:

• Teaching supported by the Northern Deanery of the Faculty of Surgeons.

• A multidisciplinary teaching team including consultant radiologists, radiographers and pharmacologists.

• The opportunity to gain Prescription Only Medicines (POMs) for Podiatrists registration with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC).

Podiatric surgeons undertake invasive surgery on the foot and ankle and manage a wide range of conditions surgically. This course offers qualified podiatrists the opportunity to expand and develop your knowledge and skills in this specialist area, equipping you with the competencies to start on the path to becoming a podiatric surgeon. The Surgical Faculty of the Society of Chiropodists and Podiatrists was involved with the development of this course to ensure that our provision meets the current needs of the profession and its existing training programmes.

You will study the core areas necessary for professional practice: the clinical sciences, health psychology, medicine, pharmacology, surgery, orthopaedics, research methods and clinical practice.

This intensive programme runs over 45 weeks per year, for two years. Your time on the course will be balanced between campus-based study and clinical practice.

The course begins in September. Formal lectures are an integral part of the curriculum and you also learn through seminars, student presentations and interactive workshops, some of which will be shared with students on the undergraduate program. You will be assessed through essays, exams, practical reports, presentations and your professional development portfolio.

As a podiatry student you will also share some teaching with students on physiotherapy, occupational therapy and pharmacy courses, allowing you to exchange knowledge and expertise with students from other disciplines.

Your practical placements will be mainly at our own Leaf hospital and the local NHS trusts. Day placements for students are arranged with clinics and hospitals across the south-east England and London. There is also an opportunity for self-funded placement at the University of Malta.

Facilities

Leaf Hospital:

You will have access to the Leaf Hospital in Eastbourne, our own fully-staffed clinical facility, which offers a podiatry service and a private practice physiotherapy service. This gives you a further opportunity to gain practical experience treating patients throughout your degree.

The Leaf Hospital has two main clinics and three further consulting rooms, allowing up to 28 patients to be seen at any one time. Clinical practice is supported by a complete range of diagnostic and therapeutic equipment, including gait analysis, imaging and more.

You will benefit from use of the orthotics department, where you will produce high quality orthotics and insoles for patients as part of the practical element of your course.

On the first floor there is a fully equipped operating theatre for minor surgical procedures and a human anatomy lab where you will study prosection and take part in lower limb dissection.

Human Movement Laboratory:

The Human Movement Laboratory is used widely by our physiotherapy, occupational therapy and podiatry students, and is also used for commercial consultancy.

In the lab you will use the latest technology to measure and assess all aspects of human movement, joints, muscles, soft tissue structure and nerves. The laboratory has equipment for conducting cardio-pulmonary investigations including Cosmed metabolic system and spirometry.

Careers and Employability

Our graduates enjoy excellent employment prospects, typically securing roles in advanced practice, clinical teaching, research, education and training, and a variety of positions in the NHS and private sector.

They are working in the UK and worldwide in Europe and Canada, the Caribbean, the Middle East and Singapore.

Podiatrists engage with patient care in a wide range of practices from independent work in the community or private practice to multidisciplinary work in a hospital setting. The scope of podiatry practice varies from general foot care (nail, callus, corns) to musculoskeletal care (for example, tendinopathy, provision of insoles, orthoses and footwear), minor surgery (for example, toenail removal) and wound care (for exampe, diabetic foot ulcers).

With further study and extensive training, graduates can train to become a podiatric surgeon, who is allowed to perform the surgical treatment of the foot and its associated structures.

Graduates of this course are also equipped for further study at MPhil and PhD level.
