In-Residence Training

Training needs can vary from country to country depending on population base, health care delivery systems and health care funding models. The Ponseti Training Program offers the following model for training.

Model:
  • Phase I: 2-3 week Fellowships. Individuals train at the University of Iowa or another approved site. One for each regional hub needed in country.
  • Phase II (A) For countries in which only one regional hub is needed: Site Visits and Regional Hub Trainings.  Within one year of each fellowship, two approved PIA international trainers spend one week at new Ponseti Regional Training and Treatment Hub facilitating need assessments, conducting additional trainings, and consulting on the establishment of relevant partnerships. 
  • Phase II (B) For countries in which more than one regional hub is needed:  Site Visits and Regional Hub Trainings.  Within one year of each fellowship, one approved PIA international trainer and 1-4 local PIA approved trainers spend one week at the new Ponseti Regional Training and Treatment Hub facilitating need assessments, conducting additional trainings for satellite clinic personnel, and consulting on the establishment of relevant partnerships. 
  • Phase III:  Regional Hub Clinic Days.  Within six months of initial training, each trainee will return to the Ponseti Regional Training and Treatment Hub to work alongside the director during a minimum of two clubfoot clinic days.
