Dr Paul Butterworth is a Podiatric Surgeon and the Course Coordinator for the School of Podiatry at Southern Cross University, Gold Coast Campus, and we both agree that podiatrists are creative people. 

All you need to do is stop once in a while, look around, and take notice of some the fantastic things podiatrists are doing in our profession. 

On this episode we discuss:

  • Why lecturing is rewarding.
  • The creative side of podiatry.
  • We are educating students to think outside the box.

"We have rules we must follow, but it doesn't mean you cannot be creative".

  • His PhD - Obesity & Foot Pain.

"Podiatry is about keeping people mobile".

  • There's a lot of financial security in Podiatry
  • The importance of taking responsibility to educate yourself.

WORKSHOP - Biomechanics & Business: Profit From A Better Understanding. Gold Coast 7-8 June BOOK NOW

Every successful podiatrist has an excellent foundation in biomechanics, it's that simple, and this two-day workshop is going to be jam-packed with useful biomechanical information you can apply immediately in your business and with your patients.  

In addition to having excellent biomechanical skills, it's equally important to know how to market these skills. You can have the most advanced biomechanical equipment and have acquired biomechanical skills far beyond any of your competitors, but without a well thought out marketing strategy, it will, unfortunately, go unnoticed.

This is why we're bringing Biomechanics and Business together in one 2-Day Workshop.
