Physio pros

respected profession within healthcare

Experts at muscular skeletal system and health related issues

Wide scope of practice

Plenty of nhs job opportunities within NHS

Cons

Crap pay


Podiatry pros

Can work on nhs or private

You can set up a MSK and basic footcare podiatry clinic

Cons

Not many nhs jobs

Limited scope of practice

Everyone in healthcare thinks your a toe nail cutter and treat u as such

Course as a massive fail and drop out rate

Also pooly paid on nhs


I know people in both industrys and I don't think any are worth doing due to the lack money.

Made me laugh re clipping toenails. AHPs need to do better at making sure everyone within healthcare and outside knows what these professions are. For instance, joe public things physio is just injuries and rubbish exercises, and a magician.
