    I have heard reports that the course has been suspended. Anyone have the details?

    Good to see Australia is not alone in this regard (assuming its true).

    Mitchner Coarse Suspended

    Dear Collegues,

    This is not the first time the course has been suspended. The last time
    the course shut down for in depth assesment was in the late 90's.
    It seems that the Mitchner as an educational institution does not have the
    ability to design and deliver a cirriculum to satisfy the competency profile
    for Chiropodists in Ontario and therefore are going through a review.
    I must point out, that when it comes to foothealth providers, that in most
    regulated Canadian provinces the term Chiropodist and Podiatrist are not
    synonomous. These are two professions with different education and
    different scopes of practice. It is always education that separates a nurse
    from a doctor and a dentist from a dental hygenist. The same applys
    here between a Chiropodist and a Podiatrist. Thats the way it is in the real
    world. Remember, it is not in the incision but in the descision.
    Please note there is a true 4 year degree program of Podiatric Medicine in
    Canada at the University of Trois Rivieres in province of Quebec.

    Chiropodist vs podiatrist

    I personally do not see the difference. What I do see as a distinct
    difference is the training a podiatrist/surgical chiropodist receives
    compared with some darn nurse. What is going on in Canada? You
    can let a bunch of nurses get together and perform duties that
    should obviously be performed by a podiatrist or a chiropodist but
    you can't come to a cut and dry conclusion about the distinction
    between the podiatrist and the chiropodist. If a chiropodist cannot
    do everything a podiatrist does, then why the heck are nurses even
    coming close to a foot??!!!
