The Board consults on a revised registration standard for specialist registration

10 May 2022

The Podiatry Board of Australia (Board) is keen to hear from practitioners, the community and organisations about proposed changes to the registration standard for specialist registration.

The Board’s Registration standard: Specialist registration for the podiatry specialty of podiatric surgery sets out the requirements for specialist registration.

The registration standard is due for review and the Board is inviting feedback on proposed changes to the standard. We are not proposing any substantive changes to the current requirements for specialist registration, and we are not proposing any additional requirements. The proposed changes are:

  • primarily editorial in nature, including rewording and restructuring to improve readability, and
  • clarifying the requirement to complete a minimum of two years' full-time (or equivalent) general podiatry practice in a clinical setting.

Read more about these changes in the consultation paper on the Board’s website under Current consultations.
