What is a Podiatrist in Ireland?

A podiatrist is a medical specialist who diagnoses, assesses and treats many conditions of the foot and ankle.

CORU is a regulatory body introduced to ensure that in the future all Podiatrists will have certified registration and comprehensive insurance, for the protection of the public.

Podiatrists in this clinic have satisfied the conditions of registration: BSc Podiatry degree qualification and 1000 hours of supervised clinical training in a university training clinic.

Their competence in Podiatry must be maintained and improved by means of 30 hours of continuous professional education every year.
