ORS 805 Advanced Orthopaedics, 4 credits

The goal of this elective is to advance students’ skills in diagnosing and managing common musculoskeletal conditions across the lifespan and in different patient settings including outpatient, inpatient and surgical settings. Students will be instructed in the musculoskeletal history and physical examination, be able to identify disease, formulate a diagnosis, and initiate a treatment plan. We will foster an appreciation of the complex effect that musculoskeletal disease can have on the overall well-being of patients. This elective will build on the students’ previous knowledge gained from the first-year course, Integrated Study of the Musculoskeletal System and Integument, and the SUR800 Surgical Subspecialties elective (if applicable). 4-week elective at OCHOB, BGMC or ECMC.
