There are many educational opportunities available for hand therapists. This website has a separate section relating to the Triennial Congress. Forthcoming National Conferences or conferences run by Regional Organisations are listed and international delegates are welcomed. Some countries run longer courses which result in some type of nationally recognised qualification. These are listed under Post-Graduate Programmes. Soon, there will be an additional section where shorter courses will be advertised.
