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.
On 9 August 2018, the Australian and New Zealand Podiatry Accreditation Council (ANZPAC) was advised by the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA) and the Podiatry Board of Australia (Board) that from 1 July 2019, accreditation functions will no longer be exercised by ANZPAC. Instead, they will be exercised by a Committee of the Board.
In light of this decision, ANZPAC will not be accepting priority processing applications effective immediately. Applications for qualifications and skills assessment for migration and/or registration to either Australia or New Zealand will not be accepted after 17 May 2019.
Those applicants with a current assessment at that time will be finalised prior to 30 June 2019.
