Podiatry Clinic

What is Podiatry?

Podiatry is the health care profession concerned with the prevention, diagnosis and management of conditions that affect the foot and lower limb. People of any age may see a podiatrist. This includes young children who display unusual walking patterns or structural deformities, athletes who develop or are predisposed to injury associated with their sport or those suffering various systemic conditions such as diabeties, arthritis or peripheral vascular disease.

In the teaching clinic, patients are treated by podiatry students under the supervision of staff

The Podiatry clinic provides a vital role in the clinical training of our future podiatrists at the University. Income generated from the clinic will enhance the facilities for the benefit of the students and patients.
