PODIATRAIN project aims to create a European high educational framework to homogenize and improve knowledge of target users in advanced techniques and treatments as well as bring to bear the newest technologies for user assessment, covering the gap between foot care professionals and the continuous advances in the sector. Main beneficiaries of PODIATRAIN will be:

  • Podiatrists
  • Students finishing their BSc degree in podiatry
  • Foot health practitioners
  • Traumatologist
  • Foot surgeons

PODIATRAIN will offer these professionals a number of advantages over widely extended traditional methods providing a route to transform foot health care from an artisan craft into a modern clinical speciality. The project results will contribute to improve the competences of these professionals, widening their labour opportunities. PODIATRAIN will be available in two European languages (English and Spanish).

The pilot course PODIATRAIN : NEW TECHNOLOGIES FOR DIAGNOSIS AND TREATMENT OF FOOT PATHOLOGIES has been tested in recent months. Those students who have passed the final exam have received a certificate endorsed by the project consortium. The programme of the course in shown in the following table.

Currently, we are analysing the results obtained and the opinions and evaluations provided by the participants in the course. The improvements detected will be implemented during the next months to maximize its adequacy to satisfy the target audience.

The 4rd issue of Podiatrain Newsletter is available, check it now!
