Specific training in foot and ankle pathology is necessary to respond to the needs of our patients.
In the space of a few years, we have gone from having two or three techniques for resolving 95% of all forefoot conditions to the over 200 procedures we currently have.
Hallux valgus, hallux rigidus and metatarsalgia, flat feet, high arches and ankle arthropathy are just the tip of the iceberg.
Progress is fast and new technologies are putting specific, better developed and highly resolutive tools into expert hands. Techniques such as arthroscopy, osteotomies, major corrections and prosthetic surgery require specific training.
In efforts to meet current challenges, we need progressive, regulated training based on scientific knowledge and the experience of accredited food and ankle practitioners.
The Integrated Health Consortium, with its comprehensive portfolio of foot and ankle services, and UIC Barcelona have developed an ambitious specific training programme: the Master’s Degree in Foot and Ankle Pathology and Surgery.
Holders of an undergraduate degree in Medicine and Surgery specialised in Orthopaedic Surgery and Traumatology.
