Program Description


This three day wound care course is a comprehensive 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 the 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 cardiologists, vascular surgeons, plastic surgeons and internist elect our courses because endovenous ablation and many of the vein treatments had not been and many times still are not part of formal fellowship training because endovenous ablation techniques are relatively new treatments and keep evolving.

Audience


Cardiologists, vascular medicine trained physicians, vascular surgeons, plastic surgeons, dermatologists, internal medicine physicians, physician assistants and nurse practitioners who are part of phlebology practice, plan to be in such practice or considering to start phlebology practice physicians.

Residents or fellows who are interested in phlebology and vein treatments.

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 different 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.
