What does a podiatry academic do?

There is a frequent livestream video talk show known as PodChatLive that is for the regular learning of Podiatrists and also other clinical disciplines that might be interested in podiatry and the feet. The stream is live on Facebook after which is later modified and submitted to YouTube for longer term viewing. Every livestream includes a different guest or number of guests to talk about a different subject every time. Concerns have been answered live by the hosts and the guests through the chat on the live show on Facebook. Furthermore, there is a PodCast recording of every single livestream found on iTunes along with Spotify and the other popular podcast portals. They've created a sizeable following that keeps growing. PodChatLive can be considered a proven way whereby podiatry practitioners may get free training points or continuing medical education credits (CME's).

There is lots of curiosity in the show from podiatry academics where there have been quite a few guests on the show who hold university posts. Among the early guests was, Emma Cowley and it proved to be a well liked livestream and it was top for the while in obtaining the most views on YouTube. In that episode Emma described what university life is like for a podiatrist, particularly for those who are considering that being a career option. She described the way in which she juggles her academic career, studying for her own PhD and how she manages still to do and enjoy some private clinical practice job. Emma presented the listeners insight in what it is like for undergrad students these days, mainly in the context of social media and just how they could be used to enhance a students understanding. She talked about what her favourite publication of 2017 had been and also how vibrant the long run for Podiatric conventions is looking. There is also quite a chat regarding all of the different logical fallacies thrown in too.
