European Association of Fellows in Wound Healing (EAFWH)
EAFWH is an important partner of the MJC-WH, with the overall objective to offer courses based on the first harmonized pan-European curriculum in wound healing for the specialist physicians often dealing with wounds. The training of the EU curriculum is performed in all EU countries using harmonized slide kits and international experts in wound healing. The successful graduation from this programme goes in-line with the award of the title “European Fellow in Wound Healing”. In contrast to wound healing nurses, this programme offers physicians for the first time a harmonized indepth education in this medical field.
