Midlands Foot Course for Diabetes StRs

Written by AGHA on Friday, 26 August 2016 08:43.

Imagine this is your first day as a diabetes consultant and your senior podiatrist asks your opinion about a foot. It looks a bit infected... or perhaps it's Charcot’s? What would you do? Do you think you have what it takes to develop and lead a world class diabetes foot service?

We attempt to answer these questions and prepare the diabetes consultants of tomorrow with this practical course including hands-on workshops and dedicated lectures. We address common themes not necessarily covered in day-to-day StR training.

When:  6th December 2016, Conference Centre Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham
