  On Wednesday 09110102 ameeting of the Western Australian Fellows of the Australasian College of Podiatric Surgeons (the College) was held to discuss the issue of the training requirements of the College. Jenny Bryant, Lee Gray, Alan Bryant and Mario Horta (Fellows of the College) attended the meeting. Apologies were receivedfrom Nick Marino and Jeff Peters (Fellows). Additionally, the two WesternAustralian registrars Frank Pigliardo and Greg McCluney were in attendance. We discussed and agreed to support the following issues: - E ducationql Requirements The meeting resolved that the educational requirements laid out in the current Policy and Training Document must be adhered to by all of the active Fellows of the College. A1l active Fellows must have attained a Masters Degree with the appropriatePost-Graduate Diploma units outlined in the document i.e. Medicine, Pathology,Diagnostic Imaging, Pharmacology 1, Pharmacology 2, Biomechanics and Surgery. A11 surgically active Fellows must have completed these units within four years of 2003 ie by the end of 2006. Fellows who fail to achieve the minimum academic requirements will have their fellowship revoked and will lose the privileges of Fellowship of the Co1lege. Formal, academic, university based qualifications provides the podiatric surgeon with the necessary broad understanding of physiology, pathology, medicine surgery and pharmacology to be able to provide the highest standard of care to patients. Additionally, it provides the podiatric surgeon with the necessary skill in research methodology and epidemiology to understand and evaluate the research pertaining tothe surgical and medical treatment of foot pathology. Without these necessary qualifications it is not possible to argue that The Australasian College of Podiatric Surgeons is dedicated to the advancement of knowledge and practical skills in podiatric surgery. The College is committed to the cultivation of responsive and responsible links with the wider community, emphasising the highest standards of patient care and ethical behaviour. These commitments in conjunction with a dedication to the processes of learning, teaching and research provide a worthwhile contribution to the health of all Australians. It is imperative that all active Fellows achieve these formal academic qualifications.The College, the training programme and its Fellows will not be considered credible, will encounter substantial difficulties gaining acceptance by the broad spectrum of the medical communify and associated medical industry until we have achieved thestandard promulgated in the Policy and Training Document.The claim that podiatric surgery is a specialty will not stand up to external scrutiny once it is realised that only a portion of active Fellows meet the requirements of the policy and training document and in fact only have basic, formal under-graduate qualifications.    , onj, No other health care practitioner group will accredit practitioners as specialists without formal academic qualifications. e.g. All dental specialists have formal post-graduate universityqualifications. It is a similar situation for psychology specialists, physiotherapy specialists. Third parry providers such as government departments, workers compensation and motor vehicle insurance authorities are more likely to accept credibility on the basis o f formal, po st- graduate university based qualifi cations. We agreed that the council of the College would discuss the issue of achievement of formal academic qualification of the active Fellows and enforce the policy. The meeting also resolved that if the College did not endorse the requirement for active Fellows to achieve the educational standards set out in the policy and training document then we would consider the possibility of developing a Faculty of PodiatricSurgery independent of the College.
