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 or eligibility for Fellowship of the Australasian College of Podiatric Surgeons
- Doctor of Clinical Podiatry, University of Western Australia
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.
