Podiatry Practice Academic Careers

Clinical academic careers are integral to the discipline of Podiatry, which is practice based. At GCU all members of the academic team maintain an active clinical role which facilitates the integration of clinical practice, education and research. A number of the staff team are active researchers in their area of clinical expertise and remaining clinically active ensures the generation of clinically relevant research questions.

We work closely with full time clinical colleagues and collaborate on clinically meaningful research projects in Podiatry and Physiotherapy.
