Theory come before being let loose on patients and a good knowledge of cartilage, ligaments, bones, fractures, skeletal development, muscle structure, muscle organisation, the heart, the whole circulatory system, integumentary system, tissue viability, lymphatic circulation, the nervous system, respiration and the endocrine system gives a basis on which to begin the study of foot medicine.
The structure of the foot and its part in gait and stances are understood as are the effects of flat foot, bunions, arthritis and other disorders. Skin problems and a wide range of skin conditions are understood.

Each new challenge is met and dealt with on patients who come to the college and help our study's by being guinea pigs for our training.
