Have you considered an academic career?

There's a regular livestream video chat show known as PodChatLive that's for the ongoing education of Podiatry practitioners together with other clinical disciplines that might be interested in podiatry and the feet. The show is live on Facebook after which it is later modified and uploaded to YouTube for longer term watching. Every livestream features a different guest or group of guests to speak about a different subject every time. Inquiries have been answered live by the hosts and the guests during the chat on the live episode on Facebook. In addition, there is a PodCast version of every single livestream found on iTunes in addition to Spotify and the other common podcast providers. They've developed a considerable following that is growing. PodChatLive may very well be the best way whereby podiatrists could get free continuing education hours or continuing medical education credits (CME's).

.There is lots of interest in the show from podiatry academics and there have already been several guests on the show who hold university posts. One of the early guests was, Emma Cowley and that proved to be a well liked livestream and it was top for the while in getting the most views on YouTube. In that episode Emma talked about what academic life is about for a podiatrist, especially for those who're considering this as a career option. Emma pointed out how she juggles her academic job, researching for her own PhD and how she handles still to do and have some private clinical practice work. Emma presented the viewers insight in just what it is like for undergrad students now, especially in the framework of social media and how they may be employed to improve a students understanding. She pointed out what her favourite paper of 2017 was and how good the long run for Podiatric conventions looks. There is also a significant conversation regarding all of the different logical fallacies thrown in too.
