Where will the podiatry profession be in the next 10 or 20 years? That's an interesting question, and to give you some insight my guest today is Jackson Tisdell, a 2017 University of Newcastle graduate.
Jackson currently works at Forster Tuncurry Sports Podiatry, NSW, which is a biomechanics exclusive podiatry clinic, and he openly shares his thoughts and experiences in the profession so far.
On this episode we discuss:
- How the profession has exceeded his expectations
- The benefits of good mentorship
- Why he didn't search for full-time immediately upon graduation
- The benefits of waiting to find the right employer
- Being prepared to work for less to gain experience
- Finding you WHY and what inspires you
- Being on a path of constant learning
- New graduates are going to make mistakes, and why they should be allowed to, it's part of the education process
- Social Media
- Blogging and documenting
- Being part of the employers brand, not just an employee
- Using the title DR
- Why new graduates need to have a voice
- Treatment protocols and making decisions
- Being patient centred with your treatment and how it relates to the patient's goals
- The importance of follow up
Jackon is currently preparing a presentation called New Grad Tips From A New Grad, which he hopes to present in universities around Australia, and if you want to reach out to Jackon he can be contacted at

WORKSHOP - Biomechanics & Marketing: 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 Marketing together in one 2-Day Workshop.

GREAT PODCAST: ☆☆☆☆☆ “I'm really enjoying this podcast. Tyson Franklin is an excellent host and brings humour to the show. He does a great job of steering the conversation to get the most out of his guests. The podcast certainly sets out what it hopes to achieve, which is informing podiatrist around the world what great and innovative things other podiatrists are doing. I'd highly recommend this to any podiatrist.” Benn Boshell via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 05/02/19
