Podiatrist registration - Queensland


You need to be registered to practise as a podiatrist or a chiropodist. Registered podiatrists and chiropodists are involved in the diagnosis and treatment of problems associated with feet, ankles and related areas and, depending on their qualifications and experience, may use the protected titles of podiatrist and chiropodists.

There are five different types of registration offered to practitioners:
