Non-practising registration

This type of registration may be suitable for podiatrists who:

  • have retired completely from podiatry practice
  • are not practising temporarily (for example, on maternity or paternity leave)
  • are not practising in Australia but are practising overseas.

The Board's definition of 'practice' is:

Any role, whether remunerated or not, in which the individual uses their skills and knowledge as a health practitioner in their profession. For the purposes of this registration standard, practice is not restricted to the provision of direct clinical care. It also includes using professional knowledge in a direct non-clinical relationship with clients, working in management, administration, education, research, advisory, regulatory or policy development roles, and any other roles that impact on safe, effective delivery of services in the profession.

Podiatrists with non-practising registration cannot undertake any practice as defined above.

There is a reduced fee for non-practising registration.
