    Hello my names Sophie,

    I am considering jacking in my current job to become a podiatrist.

    After having already failed to qualify as a radiographer - and really regretting so (I was too young and didnt care about the course!) I am thinking about going back into the medical related field.

    I have tried to read up using information provided by university course guides. It says that students are required to register with HPC and another professional body. It also says that podiatrists work as independant practitioners.

    I'd like to know, after the degree, is a podiatrist able to set up their own practice?

    Is there any chartership/further exams/learning required before working as an independant practitioner?

    What salary can one expect working for the NHS vs private?

    Any advice would be greatly appreciates.

    Many thanks

    Yes
    No extra exams or qualifications are needed, but plenty of more learning is still needed.
