¿Qué aprenderé?

Studying podiatry develops your skills and clinical reasoning to work as a podiatrist in both the private and public sectors. AUT is the only university in New Zealand where you can study a podiatry degree.

Podiatry focuses on the prevention, diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation of common conditions affecting the lower limb and foot. After successfully completing AUT's podiatry degree, you can apply to register as a podiatrist in New Zealand and overseas.

Clinical placements in hospitals, primary health organisations, private practices and AUT’s on-campus podiatry clinic are a key part of this programme. These placements are your chance to experience all aspects of a podiatrist’s caseload, and a great networking opportunity. You can practise and perform minor surgical procedures in AUT’s purpose-built surgical theatre.

Career opportunities:

To work as a podiatrist you need to hold a degree in podiatry and be registered by the Podiatrists Board of New Zealand. Qualified New Zealand podiatrists are able to practise in Australia, Singapore, and the United Kingdom.

Podiatrists practise privately or in public health, and in specialised areas. Podiatrists work with a range of people and issues:

  • Sports podiatry – involves working with the novice to the professional athlete to prevent, manage and rehabilitate sports-related injuries
  • High-risk foot – involves managing populations with diabetes and rheumatological conditions
  • Older adult podiatry – involves the promotion of health and management of long-term conditions that affect the lower limb and foot
