As a podiatry student, you'll complete a cutting-edge degree, studying human anatomy, physiology, medical conditions, pharmacology, and sport medicine. From these foundations you'll learn to perform minor surgical procedures, manage complex foot and ankle conditions, and explore specialised podiatry equipment such as grinders, vacuum presses and 3D laser scanners to manufacture foot orthoses, and dopplers to assess blood flow.
