Module overview

The Foundations of Podiatric Practice Module is the foundation module for level 4 students entering the podiatry programme. It offers the student an insight into the scope and boundaries of the practice of modern podiatry whilst familiarising them with the basic concepts of medical and podiatric terminology along with the presentations of common clinical podiatric conditions. Additionally, the module covers the anatomy of the lower limb in detail to allow the student to begin to orientate themselves with the foot and ankle structures and those of the lower limb. At a pre-clinical level, students are introduced the clinical environment through use of the 'Canonbury Suite' within this module and taken through basic clinical procedure which aligns with the statutory and mandatory skills such as infection control and handwashing.
