Course content

Collaborative initiative offered in partnership between Queen Margaret University and Glasgow Caledonian University.

This modular programme aims to provide an academic underpinning in preparation for podiatric surgery and/or advanced practice and conceptualises the podiatrist as a critical, problem solving, reflective clinical practitioner who is able to act autonomously in planning and implementing professional tasks.

The programme utilises a wide variety of contemporary learning and teaching approaches which challenges the students to work independently as well as fostering an appreciation of the value of a team approach to care. These key generic skills are developed and utilised to promote the highest quality of practice and enable the students to use the best available evidence as well as widening their scope of practice.

The programme aims to produce a practitioner who is able to gather systematically, appraise, make sound judgements in the absence of complete data, utilise the best available evidence for practice and disseminate this information to other colleagues and the broader healthcare community.
