Leading podiatry group my FootDr has been celebrated for their strong commitment to podiatry studies at the recent QUT Faculty of Health Awards Ceremony.
My FootDr co-founder, Greg Dower, won a Special Excellence Award from the Chancellor for his contributions to the field of podiatric medicine. He was the Outstanding Alumni Award Winner for 2016, and was a guest presenter for the 2016 Faculty of Health Awards night on Tuesday the 22nd of February.
“QUT has set the foundations for a successful career in the health industry for tens of thousands of people over the years, and I am very grateful for the incredible education experience during my undergraduate program. There is real truth to the slogan, ‘A University for the Real World’, as noted by the large number of successful QUT health graduates within the healthcare workforce,” said Mr Dower.
Greg will continue to maintain ties with QUT in 2017 as a clinical supervisor and guest lecturer.
“Being a mentor for recent graduates and 4th Year students is a very rewarding part of my job.” Added Mr Dower.
The my FootDr podiatry group has employed over twenty QUT graduates since 2015 and Australia’s largest podiatry group plans on taking on many more new graduates in 2017 and beyond.
my FootDr co-founder and Chief Executive Officer, Darren Stewart, said he’s proud to have a strong relationship with the QUT Faculty of Health and looks forward to a higher level of industry partnership this year.
“There are plans to ensure that each final year student has exposure to the contemporary health solutions that are evolving from our dynamic centres, so that graduates are better prepared for the modern-day workplace after graduation,” said Mr Stewart.
“All graduates get the opportunity to learn from experienced podiatry professionals, using the most innovative podiatry equipment available. This really helps to grow their diagnostic and treatment skills.” said Mr Stewart.
