Process for Application for Registration by Overseas Trained Podiatrists
Overseas trained podiatrists should contact the Australian and New Zealand Podiatry Accreditation Council (ANZPAC) to have their qualifications assessed, if their qualifications do not appear on the Board’s website as approved programs of study for application for general registration as a podiatrist in Australia.
Process for Application for Specialist Registration of Podiatric Surgeons
Qualifications accepted by the Podiatry Board of Australia for consideration towards eligibility for specialist recognition in podiatric surgery are:
- Fellowship of the Australasian College of Podiatric Surgeons
- Doctor of Clinical Podiatry, University of Western Australia
- Eligibility for Fellowship of the Australasian College of Podiatric Surgeons
Applicants who seek to attain registration as a podiatric surgeon in Australia must first gain general registration as a podiatrist with the Podiatry Board of Australia.
If applicants do not have a qualification accepted by the Podiatry Board of Australia for specialist recognition as a podiatric surgeon, they are advised to contact the Australasian College of Podiatric Surgeons (ACPS) to assess their eligibility for Fellowship of the Australasian College of Podiatric Surgeons.
