The Australian and New Zealand Podiatry Accreditation Council (ANZPAC) is an independent organisation to assess and accredit podiatry education programs that aim to graduate persons who are eligible for registration as a podiatrist and to assess the qualification and skills of overseas trained podiatrists for skilled migration to Australia or suitability to practice in Australia and New Zealand.
Qualifications & Skills Assessment
Following a scheduled review of accreditation arrangements that was undertaken across all National Boards, the Podiatry Board of Australia (Board) decided in July 2018 that the accreditation functions for the podiatry profession will be exercised by an independent accreditation committee established by the Board for a five-year period from 1 July 2019. The Podiatry Accreditation Committee (Committee) will commence undertaking the accreditation functions on 1 July 2019. To ensure a smooth transition of the accreditation work from the Australian and New Zealand Podiatry Accreditation Council (ANZPAC) to the Committee the following arrangements will apply until 30 June 2019.
Assessment of the qualifications of overseas trained podiatrists for registration purposes
Podiatrists who obtained their qualification overseas and wish to apply for general registration as a podiatrist in Australia, can contact ANZPAC at email@example.com until 17 May 2019 to have their qualifications assessed.
If ANZPAC is unable to complete the assessment by 30 June 2019, ANZPAC will seek the practitioner’s consent to transfer their application to AHPRA
