Course Description

Course Option 1: Start with our 3 1/2-day Lymphedema Advanced and Review (A&R) class (taught in English) which is held annually at the world-renowned Földi Clinic in beautiful Hinterzarten, Germany. This course is available to health care professionals from around the world who are certified in lymphedema therapy. Part of the emphasis this year will be on patient evaluation and the treatment of patients with multicausal lymphedema and lipedema. We’ll also take “A Look into the Psychological Treasure Chest in Lymphology.” This presentation will provide a variety of helpful tools that will make lymphedema treatment easier, more joyful, and more successful. Methods for avoiding professional burn-out will also be discussed. Participants will have an opportunity to observe expert lymphedema therapists of the Földi Clinic in their treatment rooms. In addition, students will be given the unique opportunity to discuss their own difficult-to-treat lymphedema cases with Dr. Uschi Walz Eschenlohr, MD and a panel of expert lymphedema therapists.

After 3 1/2 days of course activities, you’ll enjoy a 1/2 day off to explore the beautiful environment of the Black Forest.

The International Földi Days are on Friday and Saturday, May 16 – 17, another highlight of this A&R course offer and will feature international experts in the field of lymphedema and lipedema therapy. This portion of the course is offered in nearby Titisee, which is only a 4-minute train ride from Hinterzarten or a 3.5 km (45-minute) walk through a beautiful forest/nature preserve.
