Course Description

Diabetic foot is a severe chronic diabetic complication characterized by deep tissue lesions associated with neurological disorders and peripheral vascular disease in the lower limbs. Diabetic foot care necessitates multidisciplinary treatment. These patients are at a higher risk of lower extremity amputations, higher healthcare expenses, and a lower quality of life. Primary-care physicians who encounter such patients must know how to initiate a systematic workup.

The Certificate in Diabetic Foot Care is a self-paced modular program that covers the probable underlying causes of the diabetic foot and provides a basic evaluation and treatment modalities. This includes a careful examination of the history of the both patient, risk factors, pathophysiology, investigation, and imaging, followed by managing the condition and its complications.

We at Medvarsity, strive to equip every physician with the ability to fast-track their career and enable them to serve better the communities in which they practice.
