    Hi. First time here. Qualified over 30 years now, and bit of a dinosaur when it comes to this technology.
    Trained as a CHIROPODIST. Not a podiatrist. Have private practice which treats general foot problems - today, probably no more than a basic foot care assistant!
    I specialise in nothing more than making my patients walk out of my surgery on air. Is that so bad??
    Seriously thinking of leaving England for New zealand but scared about job prospects. everyone seems to specialise in SOMETHING. I specialise in making my patients happy? Is that good enough???

    Hi kibbutz & :welcome: to Podiatry Arena.

    You are among friends. ;) technology certainly isn't my strong point either but I am learning a little every day (well trying at least).

    Regardless of your title I feel sure that with
    experience in the field of providing professional foot treatments you have a wealth of knowledge.

    You will find this site encourages individuals to build on existing experiences & improve their knowledge.

    This may be by just reading along with posts of interest to you or if you feel you have something to add or indeed a question for us to ponder please do join in.

    I feel quite sure there are many members & lurkers (those reading but yet to dip their toes & join in) who would class themselves as generalist Podiatrists/Chiropodists.

    It is certainly true that there are also members whose knowledge & expert opinions continue to educate us all.

    Take a look in the New Zealand forum, the employment in New Zealand forum appears empty at present but hopefully if you ask an employment question there someone will provide some useful information.

    If that involves diagnosing their problems, educating your patients, providing professional treatment & sometimes resolving their problems then yes I would hope it is.

    It doesn't do anyone any harm to admit that none of us know everything & indeed continuing to learn is part of making the journey worthwhile.
