Program Description


This two day wound care course is our most popular wound care course for physicians, physician assistants and nurse practitioners. According to the Pew Research Center, 10,000 people turn 65 years old every day and this will continue until 2029. Additionally, seniors with chronic conditions are living longer; aging makes the skin more susceptible to breaking down, and diabetes is a growing health risk. All these factors are responsible for an ever-increasing number of patients seen by doctors in their offices.

Furthermore, seniors are staying in their homes, so many of the advanced wound care treatment protocols are being performed outside of hospitals. If you are new to wound care or interesting in a job at the wound center, adding wound care or starting wound center, this is the course for you. All our courses are designed in such a way that, we will take course attendees from basics of relevant anatomy, physiology, pathology, diagnostics and finally treatments of various wounds.

Many of physicians, surgeons even vascular surgeons and plastic surgeons attend our courses because wound care diagnosis and management especially management of chronic wounds had not been and many times still is not part of formal fellowship training.

Wound Training Program Details:


Our course programs are designed very carefully and thoughtfully. Most of the times we will ask our registrants their basic knowledge and skills in phlebology and endovenous treatments. We also try to group attendees with their peers of same or similar specialty if we can. For example needs of cardiologists are diffierent from even vascular medicine and from plastic surgoes and very different from internists. Each of our course is individually tailored based attendees and their baseline skill sets.
