Wound healing education programmes organised by the EAFWH and based on the curriculum approved by the UEMS will be held in Germany and Romania in 2020.
Programmes in more countries are expected to follow over the next years.
The programme is designed with a mix of online studies, individual preparation and face-to-face / virtual courses.
The education comprises altogether 80 hours which will consist of direct teaching, e-learning activities, documented medical activities in the field and active participation in different national and international scientific events (the inclusion of one conference of the European Wound Management Association (EWMA) is recommended).
The education ends with an e-graduation and a case report review / presentation. The title must be re-certified in 4 years. The programmes are performed in either English, or the national language of the country where the education takes place.

"The EAFWH educational programme covers all the key concepts in the wound field and the opportunity to learn with some of the experts in the area. It allowed me to consolidate knowledge, evidence based, and share experiences with colleagues from all over the world. It awakened my desire to know more about this fascinating area."

"I never regret joining the EAFWH International programme, because it widened my knowledge of wound management. Most importantly, EAFWH gave us an understanding (scientifically & clinically) of the problems of difficult-to-heal wounds & its management. Thus, I believe to become an expert in handling such wounds, it will be good to join EAFWH because you will gain more knowledge."
