Course Description

Amputee & Prosthetic Rehabilitation

University College Cork (UCC)

This is a new and unique course, with no similar course available in Ireland or the UK. It is led by a rehabilitation consultant but is fully interdisciplinary – the specialist lecturers are from a range of disciplines and students learn with and from each other. There is a strong student-centred focus, with flexible timetabling, and blended learning to minimise work disruptions. The course combines lectures, case based learning, workshops and small group discussions. The students get to visit a specialised POLAR unit and to see first-hand amputation rehabilitation in real-life practice.

In todays competitive workforce, continuous professional development is a key requirement of ongoing professional competency. CPD training aids career advancement and improves your confidence in treating patients.

In this module, students will gain solid understanding and skills in the rehabilitation of patients with amputations and prostheses, with a focus on older people.
