Please contact Ahpra’s Program Accreditation Team on the application process for providers seeking accreditation of podiatry programs of study.
As required by section 45 of the National Law, the Accreditation Committee has published its accreditation process.
The Guidelines for accreditation of education and training programs (the Guidelines) were developed following a review by the Committee of the ANZPAC Accreditation procedures for Podiatry Programs in Australia and New Zealand. The project to develop the Guidelines was undertaken in conjunction with the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Practice, Chinese Medicine, Medical Radiation Practice and Paramedicine Accreditation Committees.
When an education provider is preparing an accreditation application, the Guidelines should be read alongside the accreditation standards, and the podiatry competency standards.
If the Accreditation Committee decides not to accredit a program of study, or decides to revoke accreditation of a program, the education provider may apply for an internal review of the decision. The internal review process provides more information:
