Course Description

Podiatry is the assessment, diagnosis and treatment of foot and lower limb disorders, many of which are caused by general health disorders. You will use comprehensive assessment and diagnostic skills to develop patient care pathways for conditions which impact on people's quality of life.

You will work with children with gait abnormalities, people with high-risk conditions such as diabetes or rheumatoid arthritis and people who need specialist footwear to accommodate foot deformities. You will also provide gait analysis and treatment for athletes with biomechanical problems or sports injuries.

At Salford we have our own on-campus professionally equipped podiatry clinic and human movement laboratory where you will regularly put your learning into practice. The course has strong links to NHS clinics across the north west of England, enabling you to experience real working conditions during your extensive placements.
