Caring for patients with an amputation is complex and involves a network of specialists. At the MOOC, you will learn more about the professions involved and the associated educational paths in more than ten 20-minute videos. Specialists from all over the world will present examples of good cooperation between the various professions in treatment centres. The MOOC will take place on 12 May 2022 at OTWorld. After the event, the English-language videos will be available free of charge in the media library.

At the Education Zone, trade schools, universities and other learning institutions from all over the world will be presenting their advanced training and further education programmes and providing important inspiration for visitors' continuing professional development.
