This course enhances students’ existing knowledge and understanding of the practice of podiatry and the study of the lower limb in health and disease. Students also examine inter-professional practice and work towards career development within the NHS, other institutions and private practice. Practitioners are able to graduate whilst in full-time employment and the course enhances career prospects, particularly in relation to clinical specialisms in podiatry. The course is fully integrated within the University's health and social science graduate program, and provides valuable cross-disciplinary experience through common modules shared with other courses in the scheme. Typically delivered in one-week study blocks this approach allows attendance for students based in the UK, EU and internationally. Research is integrated with taught lectures and tutorials as well as seminars. Varied methods of assessment include assignments, case histories around student’s professional practice and written exams. A dissertation module makes up the final research-based aspect of the course
It is expected students will be within a professional setting for a minimum of 15 hours a week to help relating learning from the course to professional practice.
