May 2015 in Human Study e.V. was marked by the successful graduation of 17 Tunisian students in the comprehensive Cat II Prosthetic and Orthotic Educational Programme. The final examinations were held at Institut Mohamed Kassab d’Orthopédie in Tunis, capital of Tunisia. Two and a half years of hard work and diligent studying are finally rewarded with an internationally recognised diploma of ISPO Cat II Orthopedic Technologist. Congratulations!

Our partners on the project, Sequa gGmbh from Germany, turned the troubles of logistic preparations of this great event into a week of pleasant attendance for the eight members of the examination committee, including the two ISPO supervisors and a number of honorary guests from the local and state institutions and representatives of the German Embassy in Tunisia. The coming together of these esteemed professionals from different corners of the world made it possible for many fruitful discussions to take place with their main aim and purpose being to provide support to the local development of the profession and further improvement of the necessary infrastructure. Human Study e.V. is very grateful to all of our guests for their contribution to this event. We are thankful for your support in making the efforts invested by the partners on the project and the participating students significant not only for their local implications, but also for their contribution to the development of prosthetic and orthotic profession on the international level.

Human Study e.V. and Sequa gGmbh will continue the cooperation on further developments of the profession in the region and our goal will remain to be the establishment of sustainable solutions for achieving continuous quality of education and needed quantity of educated professionals.
