Foot Assessment and Management

Registration: $400
Early bird registration: $350
Early bird registration deadline: August 27, 2010

This 2-day seminar is designed for clinicians who are looking to develop a strong foundation of a functional foot assessment. The course will take an in-depth look at the management of common foot diagnosis integrating anatomy and pathology with the evaluation and treatment process in the acute care and community setting. 

Please remember to dress comfortably for the seminar as participants will be practicing foot assessments with other participants and we will be working with sansplint material during our hands-on component.
