about us.

Welcome!

The Podiatric Medical Practitioners CPD Network has been formed by podiatrists, for podiatrists, to support them in achieving their CPD (continuing professional development) goals. Other medical and health care professionals are also welcome to attend Network events where topics have a shared interest and relevance. 

The Podiatric Medical Practitioners CPD Network (PodMedNet) is based in New Zealand currently in the Wellington Region but is open to all podiatrists wherever they practice. There is a particular focus on the CPD requirements of the Podiatrists’ Board of New Zealand. 

The Network is largely informal, where collegiality and participation are highly valued and encouraged. Everyone can contribute in some way.

Professional & Business
Development

The Network’s primary goal is to assist podiatric medical practitioners to keep abreast of the stringent requirements around maintaining competence. Competence assurance results in positive business outcomes.

Unlimited
Knowledge Base

Podiatric Medicine has a wealth of experienced practitioners willing to share their best practice knowledge. The PodMedNet is constantly tapping into that knowledge base to provide relevant and timely education to its members.

Ultimate
Satisfaction

The PodMedNet aims to provide ultimate satisfaction and value to its members. The Network strives to determine what information and educational content its members require in order to realise those objectives.

Smart Use of
Technology

The PodMedNet understands the difficulties of marrying business and personal  commitment. We have embraced online webinar technology to replace regular physical meetings. 

Caledar of
Events

Our educational calendar will still require short physical events where hands-on participation may be required (eg. CPR) and an Annual Conference is planned to  take place each year.

PMPCPDN
Collegiality

The reasoning behind the establishment of the PodMedNet is to establish a collegial network for educational purposes, rather than for political lobbying. Emphasis is placed upon providing its members with the CPD required in order to fulfil  the legislated requirements of the MOH HPCA Act 2003
