New standard to be implemented

24 Feb 2015

The Podiatry Board of Australia’s new specialist registration standard takes effect from today.

The Registration standard for specialist registration for the podiatry specialty of podiatric surgery sets out the requirements that must be met to be granted specialist registration to practise as a podiatric surgeon in Australia and the ongoing requirements to maintain specialist registration.

The only requirement that the registration standard imposes, in addition to the requirements for specialist registration as set out in the National Law1, is the completion of at least two years of full-time general podiatry practice in a clinical setting.

A new specialist registration application form is available on the Board’s website.

The new standard was released in December so practitioners could familiarise themselves with its content before implementation from today.
