What Aimee Says

I was delighted with my exam results and couldn’t believe I won both the academic awards! I loved studying Podiatry at QMU. The lecturers were fantastic and the course is designed to ensure you leave as competent, confident podiatrists.

An internship during my time at QMU provided so many opportunities for me, from meeting brilliant, influential people in the field of research and rheumatology, to getting stuck in with on-going projects, using state-of-the-art technology and working alongside a huge variety of professionals from consultants to engineers.”

I ’m passionate about the promotion of podiatry and other allied health professions that are so often over-looked in the medical profession.
