Strong Growth in Demand for Podiatrists in the Middle East
Podiatry is the field of medicine focusing on the care and treatment of the toes, feet, ankles, knees, legs and hips, a field of healthcare which is exhibiting growing demand amongst the population of the UAE and the Middle East generally. Podiatrists are highly specialised allied healthcare professionals, who treat a range of lower limb issues such as ingrowing toenails, verrucas, fungal infections and biomechanical anomalies such as ‘flat feet’ and heel pain.
Podiatrists also assess and care for diabetic feet, from annual routine assessments to ulcer care. Dubai Podiatry Centre is a unique specialist clinic in the region to focus only on the leg, foot and ankle. It is the only provider of corrective bespoke prescription orthotic therapy, addressing biomechanical issues such as over-pronation and collapsed medial long arches of the feet, an issue which appears to be more prevalent in the region.
With a range of other foot health issues such as fungal skin and nail infections, verruca infections, biomechanical anomalies and diabetes foot care/management also common in the region, the need for highly trained, experienced Podiatrists to address these is high.
Dubai Podiatry Centre is the region’s leading specialist foot clinic with a reputation for advanced patient-centred therapy and skilled, caring professionals. As part of the Clinic’s commitment to efficient and timely treatment for its patients the Clinic is seeking Podiatrists to join their team to cope with the growth in demand for qualified, specialist Podiatric care and reduce waiting time for appointments. Previous team members have joined from as far afield as Scotland and Australia, with the Clinic keen to recruit only the finest in the field worldwide. The dynamic, vibrant city life, tax free lifestyle and safe, low-crime and sunny environment also tend to be strong draws for candidates keen to relocate to Dubai.
Founder and Chief Podiatrist Michelle Champlin says, “We have built an excellent reputation in the region for high quality and advanced therapies for our patients, and we’re excited to invite suitably qualified and skilled Podiatrists to join our team in this thriving city. Not only are we looking for appropriately qualified Podiatrists, they must be genuinely enthusiastic about the field of Podiatry and be keen to continue Dubai Podiatry Centre’s ethos of going the extra mile for patients.” Due to the Clinic’s reputation as an outstanding provider of custom orthotic therapy for both children and adults, it is vital that every member of the Podiatric team has a strong interest and in-depth understanding of biomechanics.
