    I happen to stumble onto this site because I have been looking for proper footwear for my condition. I keep reading the word pedorthic or pedorthist and wanted to find out more about it. Which made me interested to find out what it would take to become a pedorthist or podiatrist?

    Hi, perhaps searching the threads is your best option. Each country has its own regulations. You would have to follow a specific country.

    Cheers

    Agreed! If you want to train in the UK the degree is a 3 year BSC & 4 years in Scotland & Ireland. You will need to show evidence of why you want to be a podiatrist so i would suggest spending some time with a podiatrist to see if it really is the career for you.

    Thanks
    Lucy :)
     
  4. Hi!
    I personally find the degree really rewarding (I've just finished my 4th year in Glasgow in Scotland) and Ive loved every minute of it!

    One thing I would warn you of though is that there isn't many jobs in Podiatry in the UK right now-I don't know how it will be in a few years time!!

    Hannah :)
