UPDATE: The Pisa International Diabetic Foot Course is rescheduled to 2021

Dear friends and partners, 

After much consideration of all options, we have decided to reschedule the 12th Pisa International Diabetic Foot Course to 6-9 October 2021

The continuing restrictions on travel and meetings due to the COVID-19 pandemic across all of Europe and beyond has caused us to come to the decision to postpone the course. With the health of the global community as a main priority and the planning of participants, speakers, sponsors and collaborators in mind, we find that it is best to make this decision now rather than later.

We hope for your understanding and look forward to welcoming you all to Pisa in 2021. 

Best regards

The 12th Pisa International Diabetic Foot Course


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 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
