FULL TIME GRADUATE PROGRAM FOR A PODIATRIST INTERESTED IN BIOMECHANICS
Sports Science Podiatry Pty Ltd
The reason you may want to work in private practice is that you wish to have a patient caseload you love seeing, you want to be paid well, have awesome team-mates and flexible working hours.
How would a caseload that is 80% filled up with plantar heel pain, Achilles tendinopathy, patellofemoral pain, MTSS, Sever's, HAV, neuromas with a weekly PNA sound like to you?
Are you looking for a more fulfilling role as a Podiatrist and want to do more than just cut toenails and callus? Worried that if you start as a routine care podiatrist, you will never be able to move out of it? Would you like to be earning $100K and looking to work 4 days a week in 12-24 months time?
Are you a motivated and dynamic graduate or podiatrist who wants to ignite your career and boost your biomechanical and MSK clinical skills which has been undeveloped because of lack of exposure at uni or your previous caseloads?
Did you become a podiatrist because you loved sports and being active yourself? Did you default to podiatry, because you really wanted to be a physio seeing musculoskeletal cases, but didn't get in?
Was it a case of you seeing a health practitioner when you were younger and that inspired you to help people like yourself in the future?
Have a thirst to develop your clinical knowledge and skills to provide the best patient outcomes going above and beyond the experience you had when you were the patient?
Are you a fun, personable, outgoing practitioner and yearn to join a like-minded, vibrant supportive team which strive for best patient care and have a lot of fun whilst doing it?
Your career so far isn't tracking in the path you wanted it to but you know that there is a better opportunity waiting for you... or you are a new graduate and you want to kickstart it with the best learning opportunity in the area you are passionate about!
