The international course will be based on the expertise gathered from 10 consecutive years of providing national courses on the Diabetic Foot. Based on an increasing interest and acknowledgement of the importance of proper treatment, we have decided to make the course available to an international audience. The course is in agreement with the International Consensus on the Diabetic Foot & Practical Guidelines on the Management and Prevention of the Diabetic Foot and is endorsed by the IWGDF (Int. Working Group of the Diabetic Foot).

The 2½ day theoretical & practical course gives participants a thorough view of the different aspects of the diagnosis, treatment and management of the Charcot Foot. The main focus are practical sessions in small groups to train the diagnostic and treatment skills necessary for the interdisciplinary treatment of Charcot patients. In addition, state of the art lectures as well as pro and contra presentations of disputed topics will be given by international specialists in the field.
