Sports Science Podiatry Pty Ltd
Are you a motivated and dynamic podiatrist who wants to skyrocket in clinical skills in a fun supportive practice? Look no further, it is at the SA Running Injury Clinic.
If you want to know how great a first job it is...we can give you contact from our previous interns.
- Did you become a podiatrist because you loved sports and being active yourself?
- Was it a case of you seeing a health practitioner when you were younger and that inspired you to help people like yourself in the future?

- Are you a fun, personable, outgoing practitioner and have a desire to excel in private practice

We hire based on ATTITUDE and DESIRE. We can teach you the skills. Our current new graduates are loving their jobs and at capacity (we only allow our practitioners to be 80% full to avoid burnout).
