fields of study / plans the course is directly associated with
Course objectives
At the end of the course students should be able to understand how to examine the orthopaedic patient (history, objective examination of the locomotor apparatus), should be able to apply imaging methods and laboratory tests leading to establishing of the diagnosis, should be able to distinquish among other conditions and to suggest the mangement of the condition. The student would be able to asses the prognosis of the condition.
