Podiatry pod grad internships in high risk foot
There is a shortage of podiatrists to take up jobs in hispitals for high risk foot clinics. Bringing in overseas experienced clinicians can only be a short term fix. I suggest we make use of the Local graduates of AUT podiatry programme and have post graduate internships in the hsopitals. This will allow local graduates to have the opportunity fior experience in this aspect iof podiatry as well as create a supply of experienced clinicians who are aware of the local health care and community context.
These interns would be mentored on the job with a curriculum set.
These would need to be paid posts at graduate entry level that perhaps can be of 2 years durations. This could be perhaps done along with the diploma in high risk foot offered at AUT.
This sort of clinical experience is rare and making use of locallly trained workforce would be an answer.
Why the contribution is important
Shortage of podiatrists experinced in diabetic and high risk foot.
