I am Yves Tourné, past president of EFAS.
I plan to organize from September and for the next upcoming years, Foot and Ankle Master class courses mainly in the South West of France & The goals are to provide a high level standard knowledge to a small group of participants. The course will be focused on specific topics as Flat foot, ankle instability, caves foot, Achilles insertion tendinopathy, forefoot deformities, cartilage repair….
With academic presentations, clinical cases discussions and a full day dedicated to hands-on using anatomical specimen and pathological 3D printed foot and ankle models.

All the main techniques will be demonstrated and performed by the attendees. International faculty well-recognized speakers will join me regarding the topic.
