Dear O.T. collegues,
My name is Nancy. I am originally from Egypt but I have been living in Canada for the last 10 years. I studied OT and graduated this year from the University of Ottawa. I was so glad to learn about this site, you have done a great work to introduce and develop OT in Egypt. Presently, I am here in Egypt for the summer and I would be so honored to help in anyway. Thank you for your efforts and great work in developing OT internationnally :)

Thanks so much for all the wonderful feedback. For those of you that sent me your personal emails, I will reply in length regarding your questions and comments.

I will keep the blog updated regarding future OT positions, conferences, and educational programs as things develop.

Please let me know if there is any specific information that you would like me to post about that has not already been included.

Dear colleague,

The International Course on the Hand will take place for the fourth time in Bodrum (southwest coast of Turkey) in 6 years. After having organised a Hand Symposium in 2005 it was decided to return to the concept of a real hand course. The first three hand courses were very successful and many lecturers and participants have spent a wonderful time in Bodrum.

The course is aiming at health care professionals involved in the diagnosis and treatment of patients with hand problems of various origins. Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation doctors, Plastic-, Hand- and Orthopaedic surgeons, Orthopaedists as well as Rheumatologists, Physiotherapists and Occupational Therapists are invited to attend the course. Besides the multidisciplinary approach the main advantage of the meeting is that people from several countries and from several backgrounds meet and exchange ideas and opinions and return home with new enthusiasm and new inspiration.

The course really wants to contribute to a better understanding between cultures in Europe in the widest sense, improve the level of knowledge and skills of the health care professionals, with the ultimate goal to improve the treatment of those patients that suffer from hand problems.

As chairman of the 5th International Hand Course I invite all friends from Europe and the host country Turkey to come to Bodrum and join this interesting meeting (UEMS accreditation, 24 points).

Please visit our website for more information, the regularly updated preliminary program and a registration form.
