Associate Professor Caroline Robinson is the Associate Head School of Allied Health, Exercise and Sports Sciences (SAHESS), Head of Discipline Podiatry and the Sub Dean Learning and Teaching, Faculty of Science and Health, Charles Sturt University (CSU). She moved to Australia from the United Kingdom in 2005, where she completed her Fellowship in Podiatric Surgery and Masters in Pharmacology. Caroline teaches across the podiatry program and has a particular interest in healthy ageing, First Nations curriculum, and pharmacology. She leads curriculum development in SAHESS and is working to enable pathways into podiatry, particularly for Aboriginal students. Her research work in partnership with Aboriginal and non-Indigenous colleagues focuses on developing Indigenous cultural capabilities for allied health students and staff.
Caroline is the inaugural Chair of the Australasian Council of Podiatry Deans, collaborating with the Podiatry Program Leaders in Australia and New Zealand to provide an important voice for podiatry educators and enabling a coordinated approach to education initiatives and issues that affect podiatry courses and student education. She enjoys writing for forums such as The Conversation, presenting complex information in an accessible format to promote awareness of common health issues and making a contribution to improving health literacy.
My teaching experience spans most area of the podiatry curriculum. In particular I enjoy helping students to learn about the podiatry profession; cultural capabilities and culturally safe practice; pharmacology and Endorsement for Scheduled Medicines; and podiatric surgery.
