Our role in approving podiatric surgery training
If you wish to offer a new podiatric surgery programme, you will need to seek approval for the programme.
Appropriately qualified chiropodists / podiatrists may perform podiatric surgery.
Appropriately qualified chiropodists / podiatrists will have their registration records annotated.
Programmes must meet our standards for podiatric surgery. These Standards set clear expectations of the process and systems education providers delivering podiatric surgery training should have in place to manage their programme.
They also set out our expectations of chiropodists / podiatrists who will have their registration record annotated. Education providers must ensure those who complete podiatric surgery training are able to meet these competencies.
