A lecturer at Queen Margaret University (QMU) has been shortlisted for the ‘Inspirational podiatrist of the year’ award in The Tomorrow’s Podiatrist Awards 2019.

Joseph McIntyre, lecturer in podiatry at QMU, has been recognised in The Tomorrow’s Podiatrist Awards - the first podiatry-focused awards that recognise the outstanding contributions of those who enrich the student experience and the students who shine in the profession.

The Inspirational Podiatrist of the Year category recognises that it’s not just in lectures where future podiatrists are inspired. It’s the podiatrists they meet throughout their journey that shape their interests, passions and future.

Nominees will have helped shape the next generation of podiatrists. This may have been by inspiring them to study podiatry, enthusing them in a particular aspect or setting standards to aspire to.

Joseph said: “It was lovely - and genuinely unexpected - to be nominated for this award, let alone shortlisted with the other finalists. Good luck to all of the nominated candidates, although of course I am hoping for a QMU win!”

Also hoping for a successful outcome at the awards are QMU senior lecturers Evelyn Weir and John Veto, and practice educator, Sara Henderson, all of whom have been nominated in the Educator of the Year category. Evelyn and John are lecturers in the Dietetics, Nutrition & Biological Sciences, Physiotherapy, Podiatry & Radiography Division. Sara is an NHS podiatrist but works very closely with the team at QMU.

The winners will be announced at an evening celebration at the end of the Future of Podiatry Conference on Friday 21 June 2019.
