Short Courses

Through Short Courses, ISPO provides teaching and training to professionals in the field of prosthetics and orthotics as well as related areas, with a special focus on emerging and developing countries.

Short Courses provide an opportunity for ISPO members and professionals in general to keep abreast of current issues and professional standards for the care of people with physical disabilities.
