From today, podiatry students and graduates have a new way of finding out about becoming a registered podiatrist.
The three minute video, which was launched today by the Podiatry Board of Australia, outlines what graduates need to do before they can register and practise as podiatrists, and what they need to do to renew their registration each year once they are registered.
Board Chair Ms Catherine Loughry said the video is a quick and easy way for graduates and students close to finishing their studies to catch up on what they need to do before applying for registration.
‘Finishing studies is the first big step towards being a podiatrist’, said Ms Loughry.
‘The next step is to understand the registration standards they need to meet to become registered with the Podiatry Board of Australia and join the ranks of Australia’s 4,300 registered podiatrists.
In addition to outlining the standards graduates must meet to become registered, the video also includes information about the ongoing obligations for podiatrists.
This video and other information for students and graduates is available on the General registration page of the Podiatry Board website.
