Overview

Bachelor of Health Science (Podiatry)

Studying podiatry develops your skills and clinical reasoning to work as a podiatrist in both the private and public sectors. 

AUT is the only university in New Zealand where you can study a podiatry degree.

Podiatry focuses on the prevention, diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation of common conditions affecting the lower limb and foot. 

After successfully completing AUT's podiatry degree, you can apply to register as a podiatrist in New Zealand and overseas.

Clinical placements in hospitals, primary health organizations, private practices and AUT’s on-campus podiatry clinic are a key part of this programme. 

These placements are your chance to experience all aspects of a podiatrist’s caseload, and a great networking opportunity. 

You can practice and perform minor surgical procedures in AUT’s purpose-built surgical theatre.

 

Workplace experience
