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.

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.
