Chiropody is an allied branch of medicine that specializes on the general science of foot care. To become a licensed chiropodist, you need to take 3 to 5 years of medical education that focuses on chiropody training.
In the past, there are sub-professional chiropody courses and special trainings that award certificates for individuals who want to become foot health practitioners. But in order to protect chiropody as a special branch of medicine and to protect the title of Chiropodist, the sub-pro certification system has been abolished by medical institutions.
Today, if you want to be called a Chiropodist, you need at least 3 years of undergraduate education specializing on the science of chiropody. You must also pass a licensure examination so you can practice as a Chiropodist.
