Research is the foundation for the building of clinical excellence
EFAS is an organization extremely devoted to Education. We are sure that the way to go is to increase the level of expertise and information of the European Surgeons that embrace the field of Foot and Ankle Surgery. This effort must be more effective on young surgeons, because it’s obvious that the future is on their hands. Also, we need that young surgeons feel that EFAS is a place for improvement and exchange of expertise and knowledge.
We are certain as well that research is the foundation for the building of clinical excellence. On the other hand, being confronted with different experiences and reality might be in lighting. With this in mind, EFAS has developed for several years a program of travelling fellowships which has been a success and that we intend to expand as soon as the epidemic situation permits. In addition, we are starting, conditioned buy the sanitary situation, a project for Research Fellowships where the Fellow will spend some months on a select Research Centre and develop a project on the Foot and Ankle field.
At the same time, we are selecting a group of Fellowship opportunities across the Continent and Internationally with a more Clinical environment, where the Fellow can integrate a Team on a selected Centre with a renowned Tutor. These opportunities are available through the EFAS website.
