The Podiatry Board of Australia has approval from the Ministerial Council for specialist registration for the podiatry specialty of podiatric surgery. The protected title under the National Law is podiatric surgeon.
The National Law, together with the Board's registration standards, define the requirements that need to be met to be registered.
The Podiatry Board of Australia has developed codes and guidelines to provide guidance to the profession. These also help to clarify our views and expectations on a range of issues.
For the specialist registration form, see the Forms page.
The Board’s new Registration standard for specialist registration for the podiatry specialty of podiatric surgery comes into effect from 24 February 2015.
A new specialist registration application form will be published on the Forms page in mid-February.
More information about the registration process can be found on the AHPRA website.
The approved programs of study can be found on the Accreditation page.
If applicants do not have a qualification accepted by the Podiatry Board of Australia for specialist registration 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.
