The 12th Pisa International Diabetic Foot Course

Join physically or virtually

Management of the Diabetic Foot

The Pisa International Diabetic Foot Courses are based on the knowledge and structure of treatment offered by the specialised diabetic foot clinic at the University Hospital of Pisa. The courses are used as a basis for building up an international educational network within the area and for raising political awareness of the challenges related to treatment and prevention of the diabetic foot.

By combining lectures from different specialists and individual training in the clinic, course participants will gain insight in both the theory of the field and the practical methods used in the clinic. By also focusing on the structure of treatment and guidelines for establishing a diabetic foot clinic, the courses reach out to clinicians as well as hospital department or clinic management.

As an overall objective of the courses, the organisers aim to support the implementation of the European consensus on treatment of the diabetic foot, based on the existing guidelines.

The course organisation is working on a solution where you can join physically in Pisa as well as virtually from your own country - stay informed here on the website for more information.

    The 4 day theoretical course & practical training include the following elements:

    • Physiopathology of the Diabetic Foot
    • Multidisciplinary management skills
    • Charcot neuro-arhropathy management
    • Revascularization
    • Live Cases from the operating room with interactive audiovisual connection
    • Hands-on exercises
    • And much more... Find more information about the programme here
