EAFWH is a European non-profit society, which offers physicians involved in wound treatment (E.g. general practitioners, angiologists, diabeto- logists, dermatologists, general surgeons, plastic surgeons, geriatricians and vascular surgeons) in Europe the education to become a European Fellow in Wound Healing. The fellowship is granted according to the European training regulations of the UEMS MJC Wound Healing.
