Registration and Endorsement

From 1 July 2010 podiatrists and podiatric surgeons must be registered with the Podiatry Board of Australia and meet the Board’s registration standards to practise in Australia.

The Board keeps an up-to-date public register of all registered podiatrists and podiatric surgeons with general, specialist and non-practising registration.

Graduate registration

The Board has a range of resources to provide information about registration as a podiatrist or podiatric surgeon in Australia. A document providing guidance on when it is necessary to be registered as a podiatrist, a fact sheet providing information about becoming registered, and a video for graduating students are available on our General registration page.

Please refer to the registration section of the AHPRA website for further information on the registration process.

For information about the National Registration and Accreditation Scheme (National Scheme) for registered health practitioners see the AHPRA FAQ.
