Specialist registration

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 Registration standard for specialist registration for the podiatry specialty of podiatric surgery sets out the requirements that a podiatrist must meet to be granted specialist registration to practise as a podiatric surgeon in Australia and the ongoing requirements to maintain specialist registration.

A specialist registration application form published on the Forms page.

More information about the registration process can be found on the AHPRA website.

Approved programs of study

The approved programs of study for specialist registration can be found on the Accreditation page.

Internationally-qualified podiatric surgeons wanting to apply for specialist registration in Australia can find information about applying for specialist registration on the Overseas trained podiatrists and podiatric surgeons section of the Board’s website.
