Podiatry in Brazil

    Hi everybody,

    At first I want to say I'm new to this website and forum, but on first sight it looks cool and seems to have a lot of info on Podiatry in various country's.

    Secondly; I think a small introduction before I ask my question would be usefull.. I'm from the Netherlands and still studying podiatry, but I am in my last year. Everything is going well, and it looks like I'm graduating around June 2012. My plans than are to come to Brazil to work, live and train jiu jitsu (my biggest passion in life for a looong time).

    My question is if you guys know, or could help me find, more info about podiatry in Brazil regarding the following;
    - How big is podiatry in Brazil?
    - In what areas/region/city's of Brazil are podiatryst active?
    - You think it's possible to convert my Dutch diploma to a legal Brazilian one?
    If you know of any websites or ther bits of information about podiatry in Brazil than let me know.

    What do you guys think about the plan? Would it be possible to start working as graduate student (not nessicarely fulltime) in a country like Brazil?

    Any tips, thoughts or other information is welcome!

    Hope to here from you again.

    Hi Willem,

    Feel free to contact Israel, He lives in Brazil and knows loads of Podiatrists in Brazil and South America in general. I`m sure he wont mind as he is a nice guy. I`ve not met in personally, only on facebook were are in the Portuguese speaking Podiatrists group. With regards to other podiatrists I`m sure he would be able to put you in touch with other Podiatrists in Brazil. wish you good luck.
