PODIATRAIN project aims is 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.
PODIATRAIN arises to generate a learning offer addressed to podiatrists and foot health professionals to complement the learning outcomes of current formal high educational programmes with training in new technologies for diagnoses and treatment of patients. The diversity in formal education programmes across countries leads to a consequent heterogeneity of podiatry professionals , but the need of gaining knowledge in new technologies for patient assessment and diagnosis is a common issue throughout Europe.
