    Just a quick message to introduce myself...I'm a 3rd year student at La Trobe University in Melbourne. I've been reading some threads on various issues and have found it to be very beneficial towards my learning as a student.
    Look forward to contributing to various discussions.

    I think that many students see Podiatry Arena as a valuable tool to continuing their learning. However, i think that many students believe that these forums are only for experienced Clinicians and researchers. There appears to be a bit of "stage fright" amongst students who believe their opinions count for nothing. Students at La Trobe should be encouraged to "jump off the deep end" and contribute to these discussions.

    Look forward to contributing, Tom.

    Hi Tom,

    Glad you decided to get your toes wet. ;)

    Don't forget, even the wise HRH Payne was a student once :empathy:

    There is a beginning to all experiences, it is the building upon those foundations which creates wisdom.

    Here endeth todays twirly mutterings..... :rolleyes:

    :welcome: Tom, ahhh don't you worry about stage fright, there are many experienced practioners lurking out there (yes you) who have yet to take the plunge.
    So congratulations, we accept input from all levels, and we are all forever students or we would not be here.

    So feel free to drag all those fellow students onto the site. ( More work for me not sure that that is such a great idea) ;)

    Enjoy and look forward to meeting you in the future.
