Ankara: First Clinical Workshop for Students from Syria and Turkey

The first practical hands-on seminar was organized in two groups between April 15-24th. Syrian students travelled from Reyhanli to attend the workshop that was organized at Ankara university. 

The seminar led students through the entire production procedure where they worked with real patients under the instruction and supervision of Nicholas Muñoz and Christian Schlierf, our P&O experts. Workshop themes were transtibial prosthetics and IC-socket technique for transfemoral amputations. The level of motivation and attention the students from Syria demonstrated throughout the seminar was extraordinary. This marks the first step in leading this group towards professional advancement and international qualification. Our aim is to create future trainers who will be able to train future generations of professionals in the region.
