Time to challenge your practice - #4DFoot
  • Roland Levinsky Building

Save event

Come to this study day and find out why you need to be thinking about the foot in 4D, and what it means to your practice. 

This is the 3rd study day brought to you by the podiatry team at the University of Plymouth with the focus this year on management and treatment of musculoskeletal (MSK) conditions. 

During the day we will address the important role podiatrists have in reducing both personal and societal costs associated with foot and ankle MSK conditions. With a skillset tuned to optimising foot function and health the podiatrist can be effective in managing MSK conditions in the presence of multi-morbidity. Our aim is to enhance your skills further in the management and treatment of MSK conditions and for you to look at MSK from another dimension!

Registration fees

  • £15 student fee

Registration on the day is from 09:00.
