The purpose of the Education Committee is to provide high quality training to foot and ankle surgeons from across Europe and beyond.

To that end we organise the structure and content of the EFAS Instructional Courses, normally held three to four times a year at a variety of locations across Europe. We provide a core faculty for these courses but are also committed to working alongside local faculty colleagues.

During the pandemic we have been providing on-line webinars, details of which can be found on the Online Education page.

Committee Chair:  Jean L. Besse
