In order to practice podiatry in New Zealand podiatrists must not only have the required qualifications but also be registered with the Podiatrists Board. This is a legal requirement in place to protect the health and safety of the New Zealand public, and the Board will only grant registration to applicants who are considered competent and fit for registration.
AUT is the sole education provider of podiatry in New Zealand. Overseas trained podiatrists must gain a qualification and skills assessment from ANZPAC before they can be considered for registration here.
