What is Podiatry? 
Podiatry is a specialty that focuses on the diagnosis, treatment, prevention and management of diseases, defects and injuries of the foot, ankle and lower limb. This includes ankle and foot injuries, problems with gait or walking, complications related to medical conditions such as diabetes and arthritis and diseases of the skin or nail such as cracked heels, ingrown toenails, neuromas, warts and other fungal conditions.
Become a Podiatrist
In this role, you would spend most of your workdays attending to patients across all ages who are experiencing some sort of foot problem. During the course of one day you may encounter a toddler with a congenital foot defect, a teenager with a sports-related foot injury, a middle-aged adult with an infected ingrown toenail and an elderly with diabetes-related foot problems.
The diverse nature of the job requires that you are flexible, have outstanding analytical and communication skills and can relate to patients of all ages especially in terms of explaining treatment options and dispensing advice on how patients can improve their mobility, independence and quality of life.

To practice as a podiatrist in New Zealand, you must be registered by the Podiatrist Board New Zealand


AUT is the only education institution in New Zealand that offers study in podiatry.

Maori Language Week 

To celebrate New Zealand’s rich and diverse history, PodiatryNZ is supporting Maori Language week. This week is part of the broader Māori language revival and raises public awareness for Māori language revitalization, learning and public usage.

We have created a basic phrases chart which will help you incorporate Maori into your everyday life. Download chart here

We recommend downloading Kupu, an app that uses the camera in your phone to instantly translate objects into te reo Māori. Kupu provides a new way to experience the language. It’s really easy to use – just take a photo of an everyday object (or upload your own) and see it translated in real time. You can save the translated image, share it or have another go.
