Course content

The Masters programme provides the opportunity to advance clinical practice by developing critical evaluation skills and enhancing an evidence-based approach to practice. This can be undertaken whilst focusing on the aspects of podiatry most relevant to the individual practitioner so that they can gain a deeper understanding of issues underpinning their field of practice. The programme will be of interest to those who have a wide, general base of practice as well as appealing to those practitioners who have specialised into areas such as biomechanics, diabetes and rheumatology. The programme includes core modules and a variety of optional modules that the students may chose from in order to tailor the programme to their individual learning needs.

For successful completion of the Masters programme in podiatric medicine, students will complete three core taught modules and either a 60 credit or 30 credit research project equating to a total of 150 or 120 credits. A further 30 or 60 credits are required. These credits can be achieved through completion of optional modules selected from the MSc programmes at the School of Health and Bioscience.
