Anyone is welcome to attend this course.  The training will be applicable to those in general practice as well as those who have a significant interest in active people. 

For those who have previously attended the Fundamentals of Sports Training 2017 and Sports Workshop 2018 they will be on track to become accredited as a PodiatryNZ Sports Podiatrist.

What’s in the course?

The Sport’s workshop covers the remaining elements of the sport’s practical framework. Conducted over two days, it includes practical learning, peer group discussions, case studies and examination and diagnostic techniques.
At the conclusion of this workshop, participants will have the opportunity to be assessed and accredited as a PodiatryNZ Sports Podiatrist.

Who can become a PodiatryNZ Sports Podiatrist?

Those wanting to achieve accreditation must have at least four clinical years’ experience, including at least two years spent working towards accreditation.

Previous attendees

Those who have attended the Fundamentals of Sports Training 2017 and Sports Workshop 2018 will be able to complete the practical’s assessment by the conclusion of this workshop.

Those without previous attendance

Those who were unable to attend previous PodiatryNZ sports training may still receive recognition if they can demonstrate prior learning which includes elements of the Sports Framework. A knowledge assessment pertaining to the Fundamentals framework is also required.

How will participants be assessed?

Fundamentals knowledge assessment:

The fundamentals knowledge assessment will be a series of multichoice questions and short answers which evaluate the understanding of fundamental principles of treating active people. Resources to assist learning and revision will become available prior to the workshop. The resources are not an exclusive list, but rather a guide. Self-initiated research is encouraged.

Practical’s Assessment

Participants will need to demonstrate to their peers that they have contributed in the training, been able to communicate their decision-making abilities and demonstrate that they have been able to critically assess and evaluate each patient’s condition.  The practical’s assessment is not based on pass/fail or right/wrong answers. The assessment requires recognition that participants can demonstrate their ability to assess, evaluate and treat conditions relevant to active people amongest their peers. 


On the successful completion of the Fundamentals Assessment and after the the conclusion of a Sports Practical Training Workshop, successful candidates will be invited to become PodiatryNZ Sports Accredited.
