CPD can cover a wide range of activities: anything you do to learn or develop professionally can count towards your CPD, providing it enhances what you can offer to service users as part of your practice. In fact, you’re probably already doing more CPD than you realise!
We’ve put together a compilation of useful podiatry resources which may aid you in your CPD goals. The list below covers podcasts, webinars, and books which could help your learning.
This podcast is the place where podiatrists, from all parts of the world, will share their expert tips, and sometimes unusual stories and careers paths, with the goal of exposing you to all the vast opportunities that currently exist within the profession.
This podcast hosts a variety of guests to talk about proper foot health. The list includes runners, shoe designers, kinesiologists, and podiatrists/chiropodists. Whilst the podcast is based in Canada, The Foot Collective has a British connection.
