To create a good base for collaboration between partner educational institutions it is important to know their qualifications, competences, skills and knowlegde. The possible differences in the scope of practice, eg. worksetting and patient categories and  the level of indepency and complexity regarding podiatric care.

This working group is created with the aim to increase transparency of the qualifications, competences, knowledge and skills within the European podiatry field.
