Re: Masters of Podiatry - advice please?
I just graduated in the masters programme of unisa , and felt from a academic side it was worthwhile, not necessarily from a clinical side. ( have been in practice 32 years.) will not use this degree for employment, but gaining a greater understanding and being able to assess evidenced based info and research was helpful . the reading you need to do for assignments very time consuming but worthwhile for a greater understanding from a broad viewpoint..Not sure how many units you will need to complete, but the highest is 56 units 12 subjects , which i needed to do having studied a long time ago), took me 5 years while working fulltime. Most subjects , the electives and the core subjects are all online and assignments , the podiatry subjects require 1 week at the uni plus assignment work. one subject worthwhile as an elective was a double subject , wound care ,another good one others did was Pharmacology helpful and helps towards prescribing rights. ( you still have to do the rest of the requirements).I was one of the grandmas at 53 , most students were from 20's and 30's age group. trent i would recommend it as a valuable experience. deb ( your student supervisor from years ago)
