    It would be a good idea before hanging your shingle as a foot care specialist that you investigate the provincial chiopody/podiatry act and regualted health professions act in your province. Most will likely not recognize a BSY footcare course. Beyond that, insurance companies also require membership in a regulated province for reimbursement. Hoepfully you find your niche.

    What exactly is a qualification from BSY??????


    Okay- just googled it. What makes you think you can be a specialist in diabetic foot care?

    Sorry Charity- you cannot be for real. What is your agenda?
