Can Podiatric Surgeons prescribe medications?

Yes. All ACPS accredited podiatric surgeons with Podiatry Board of Australia  scheduled medicines endorsement can prescribe from a list of medicines.

Podiatric surgeons with PBA scheduled medicine endorsement are able to manage infections, pain relief, and preoperative sedation and anxiety. At this time, Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme (PBS) does not apply to prescriptions written by podiatrists and podiatric surgeons.
