What was the standing of podiatrists in Sweden before?
How and for how long were they trained?

Default Re: Welcome to the 1st Swedish trained podiatrists

It seems that the dust has settled a little more.

Podiatry started 3 years ago at Karolinska Institutet in Stockholm. The 1st 3 years of the course was payed for by the government. After the 1st group graduated the course was to be run and payed for by the Institute. The institute underwent a review of the program and have decided that Podiatry education in this form is not required in Sweden. ie the course will finish in 2 years and there will be no new students taken in to the program. Those that have started will be given the chance to finish the course.

Podiatry being new to Sweden has made it hard for the institute to see that it is very important part of the medicial make up.

The institute decided to stop the course for many reasons but a few were the lack of masters and phd programs in the course ( a bit hard after only 3 years but it was a big reason), the lack of specific podiatry teachers teaching the courses, orgainisation of the course and problems with student practicial sessions under a podiatrist and the fact as they see it what a podiatrist does for a job is already being provided by foot therapists and orthopeadic engineers ( p&o). A foot therapist is someone who has completed anywere from 6 months to 2 years and will work in the pallitive care and diabetic sections with no biomechanics or heavy theoritical learning, manly practicial.

As the review was being undertaken the head of the School provided a plan which would have addressed these issues but the institute decided that this would cost too much money. So the course has finished.

The door has been stightly left adjar that the institute may allow the course to run in another manner and 1 suggestion was a 2 year masters after a physio, nurse type degree. Time will tell, but Jean I guess this means not completing a podiatry program in Sweden for you if you wish to study podiatry.

Only being slightly involved in teaching 1 5 week course but understanding how good Podiatry would have been to Sweden it is very frustrating, but as it was explained to Sweden health care is acute care not preventative so why spend money helping someone from getting problems in the future wait for it to happen then deal with it then ( not very smart in my option).

Here ends the news.
